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.  Derecho events in August 2020 and July 2022 have damaged more than 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, October 14, 9a - 11a. To volunteer, please sign up using the link below:


We will meet at Ontario Cemetery off North Dakota Ave, between Timber Ridge Rd and Phoenix St. The event will begin with a tree planting demonstration.


Ames Foundation will provide shovels and rakes of all sizes as well as bottled water. All ages are welcome to participate!
