Plant the Gem

Saturday, October 15, 2022

Get ready for Plant the Gem! Be a part of our record-setting single-day tree planting on October 15, 2022.
We are looking to recruit 400 volunteers to assist in planting more than 300 trees along the Hidden Gem Half Marathon race course in Flossmoor. Our goal is to establish 60 teams of three to five people to be dispersed to various locations along the 13.1 mile Gem route.
Those interested in volunteering can sign up for one of three levels: team captain, team member, or tree supporter. Team captains are responsible for assembling a team of three to five people to help plant as many as five trees during the project. Additional instructions and training will be provided to team captains prior to the event. Those interested in signing up as a team member will be assigned a team by project organizers. There will be areas along the route with pre-established holes for people with limited physical capacity to participate. No previous tree planting experience is required and all ability levels are welcome.
Unable to make the planting day but wish to donate in other ways? Sign up as a tree support volunteer and we will provide a number of ways that you can get involved.
