Background    

Calling for volunteers of all ages to come out and assist Marietta Tree Keepers as we maintain Hill Park on Saturday, October 21, 2023. Hill Park is a pretty little pocket park that was transformed from a once vacant lot just a few blocks off the northeast corner of Historic Marietta Square.  The park was dedicated to the memory of Willie Hill, deacon of Zion Baptist Church. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Rho Zeta Omega Chapter and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Omicron Mu Lambda Chapter will also be volunteering alongside of Marietta Tree Keepers for this event.  All volunteers are welcome.

Volunteers are asked to arrive at 8:30am to enjoy donuts and beverages before digging in to work.  All ages are welcome to the family-friendly event.  Dress appropriately for the weather. Tools will be provided although volunteers are welcome to bring their favorite outdoor gloves and tools if they like. Large groups please contact us with your number of volunteers that will be in attendance.

Members of the Marietta Tree Keepers have been promoting the value of trees to the community since it was founded in 2002.  MTK has over 100 members and has planted over 10,000 trees around the city.  The 501(C)3 non-profit organization works closely with the City of Marietta to plant trees along public right-of-ways, parks and schools. Those wishing to become a member or make a donation can learn more by visiting MTK’s website at www.mariettaga.gov/committees/treekeepers. ; For more information, please call 770.424.4664.
