Bureau of Sanitation and Million Trees LA (MTLA) is teaming up to increase the public's awareness of the City's environmental programs and to make Los Angeles the cleanest, greenest big City in the nation. The event includes:
- Community Day of Service- Volunteers will be planting trees along Mission Rd. To be a part of the tree planting, RSVP to Thalia Uribe by June 23rd at (213) 473-9950 or by email, Thalia.Uribe@lacity.org. Remember to bring gardening gloves, sunblock and a hat to the event.
- Grand Opening of the East LA MTLA Tree Center and Environmental Facility- Trees and mulch will be given away at the grand opening. A limited quantity of citrus trees will be available for adoption (must live or own property within the City of Los Angeles) so it's first come first serve. The facility, soon to release its schedule of operation, will offer free mulch and trees. To find out more, contact the City's Citywide Services Directory at 3-1-1 (within LA area) or at (213) 473-3231 and request for the Million Trees LA Program.
