On March 17, Santee is turning into Santree and you can be a part of it!
is a volunteer opportunity for residents to help make a difference in our community’s aesthetic appeal. Volunteers will be making landscaping improvements in the community park, like planting trees, picking up trash and more.
About 40-50 trees will be planted in the park, according to the city website. Volunteers should bring their own gloves and shovels and be prepared to get down and dirty. Close-toed shoes should be work as you help plant greenery and remove weeds. Water will be provided for the volunteers.
Got kids? Bring them, too! Children will be kept entertained with crafts and music from bluegrass band Box Canyon. Food samples from healthy vendors will be provided to keep the hunger pangs away and to provide sustenance for the hard-working volunteers.
Santree Fest will take place rain or shine, but if the sun’s out remember that sunscreen! Those looking to lend a hand can arrive at on March 17 at 9 a.m. This is event is free for the community. Happy planting!
