The Ames Foundation would like to invite you to participate once again in replanting Ames through the Ames Community Tree Program. In 2015, The Ames Foundation entered into a partnership with the City of Ames to help replant trees that will be lost to the Emerald Ash Borer.  The 2020 August Derecho damaged nearly 300 additional trees in city managed parks and right-of-way.  Since 2016, volunteers have helped plant over 1,000 trees.

The Ames Foundation’s spring planting is planned for Saturday, May 7, 9a - 11a. To volunteer, please sign up using the link below:
