Volunteers Needed

If you are interested in gardening and/or learning more about the care of trees or tree identification, volunteer to become a member of the Lyndon Forestry Board. We are currently seeking volunteers to help plant young trees in the nursery, keep the trees watered and weeded throughout the season, and work on a tree identification project in some of the City parks. Contact the City Forester at (244-5992) for more information.
