RESCHEDULED: Plum-Palooza! Help Maryland Grow 5 Million Trees!

Sunday, October 1, 2023

Join forestry staff and community volunteers in collecting native plum seeds. Help make Maryland green!

Join local volunteers as we collect wild American plum seeds to donate to Maryland's State Nursery. The plums will grow into seedlings that will be planted in restoration projects across the state! Your efforts will help support the success of Maryland's "5 Million Trees" program. Meet staff from the Maryland Forest Service who will be leading the event.

  • Park in the lot behind the school and use the walking trail between the two sports fields to access the plum stand.
  • Pack plenty of water and a bagged lunch.
  • Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. 
  • We recommend a sun hat, work gloves, long sleeves, and long pants.
  • Bring sunblock and bug spray. Note: stinging insects like plums. If allergic, bring any necessary medication.
