More info for Saturday Tree Planting at GCV&M

Melissa gave us the specifics for Saturday’s event:

Hello All,

Thank you for your interest in joining Genesee Country Village & Museum for our Trees for Tributaries tree planting event on Saturday, May 6.  Here are some additional details for the day.

  • We will meet at 9 AM on the museum’s Oatka Property (entrance directly across from main museum entrance).  There will be signs that say Trees for Tributaries Parking to help direct you.  Please follow the signs to park.
  • Bring a shovel, work gloves and water/lunch.
  • Dress for the weather and be prepared with rain gear.  It calls for on and off rain on Saturday so dress accordingly and think sunshine! I’m optimistic, the weather meteorologists are wrong quite often.  Maybe it will be nice out!
  • We may encounter poison ivy, mosquitoes, stinging nettles and ticks.  Please wear long pants and if you normally apply insect repellent, that might be a good thing to have on hand.  We will lead a tick check at the end of the planting.  Something we have become accustomed to doing at the museum’s nature center in recent years.  Not to scare anyone off just want you spread awareness and do the best we can to keep everyone safe.

Thank you for your help.  We all look forward to getting our young trees and shrubs in the ground.
See you soon,

“Inspiring excitement and curiosity about the past and an appreciation for its relevance today.”
