Volunteers are needed this weekend to help bring the forest back to Forest Lawn.
In conjunction with Re-Tree WNY, the cemetery has arranged to plant about 300 hardwood trees throughout the grounds.
A grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo has underwritten the cost of 250 of them.
Volunteers are invited to assemble at the chapel.
Planting sessions will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday, rain or shine.
No experience is necessary.
Appropriate work clothes and closed-toe shoes or boots should be worn.
Tools and refreshments will be provided.
To volunteer, call Catherine Meyer at 885-1606, Ext. 242, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
