The tree plantings are taking place on April 19-20 and April 26-27. About 600 volunteers will plant about 15,000 trees on 23 acres this year.
Allan participated as a volunteer during the tree planting event. DCNR also provided staff members from the Bureau of Forestry to share tree planting expertise as volunteer team leaders. Each team leader heads a group of 10 volunteers the day of each planting.

The passengers and crew showed unity, courage, and defiance in the face of adversity.
