Wellington – Rotary Planting for ScoutTrees

This year’s planting with the Rotary is on APRIL 23, 2016, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

The Rotary have been great hosts to us these last few years, providing instruction, trees and tools. VERY Easy: Just bring yourselves.

As well, they’ll send you a picture of your group, with GPS coordinates of your planting, so you can go back years later to see how they’re doing (for these, please register your group at the table when entering the planting area.)

Wear uniforms: This is a great way to make Scouting visible in the community.

As always, if you want to make this a fund-raiser and get your ScoutTrees crests, you need to contact CEC.
