          *Planting Trees
             Last Spring, Cub Scout Pack 358 purchased and planted 200 trees in a tree nursery for the Zionsville Parks.  The hope was that they would grow a bit and have a better chance of survival when planted out later. Boy did they grow!  The parks are ready to transplant the trees and would like our help. 

Thursday, October 20th from 5-7pm at Turkey Foot

Saturday, November 12th from 12-3p at Creekside.

Scouts can pick one date or both.  (We have 200 pretty large trees to plant.)  Please bring and adult-sized shovel for each person that plans to dig and gloves if they are wanted.  Buckets may be useful, too (the parks did not mention them, but usually trees need "mudded in.")  Come for all or part of the time.
