Thanks to the generous support of the Berkshire Bank Foundation, Regreen Springfield and American International College, along with Berkshire Bank employees will plant 45 new street trees in Springfield on Earth Day, April 22nd. The tree planting will take place on Albemarle Street, in the Mason Square Neighborhood. This marks the second year in a row that the Berkshire Bank Foundation has funded a tree planting in the neighborhood.
This year’s planting event coincides with Earth Day, which is a celebration of the environment, and is commemorated with sustainability based initiatives around the country. Students from AIC will join Berkshire Bank staff, the Student Conservation Association, Regreen Springfield volunteers and neighborhood residents in planting the large shade trees along Albemarle Street.
Please Note: If you are interested in participating, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and just provide your name and email address. Volunteers will meet at AIC on Wilbraham Road, just opposite Albemarle Street, at 8:30 AM on Wednesday, April 22nd. Please park on nearby streets, since parking on campus is unavailable on the day of the planting. Please wear comfortable clothing, and boots if possible. Work should be completed about Noon. Lunch will be provided.
So, please consider helping out a bit on Earth Day, and help to Regreen Springfield… one tree at a time.
