Join in and help prepare the South Side Park and plant trees on October 20 and November 3 to help support the health of future generations.

Volunteers are welcome to join Plant Five for Life, Friends of South Side Park, Hilltop Al-liance, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and Allegheny County Conservation District to plant small restoration size trees along a stretch of the rim of Sterling Street Trail to celebrate the lives of new children in the community on October 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Volunteers can join Pitt Make a Difference Day in South Side Park and help Friends of South Side Park prepare portions of the Sterling Street Trail in the park for a restoration tree plant-ing as part of a Plant Five for Life project.

Plant Five for Life is planting trees for children, five per child, as a gift at birth to help cre-ate the life systems that will support childhood and healthy development. Trees are matched to sites in need of their ecological and social services. Contact Margie at to help.

Also, in collaboration with Friends of South Side Park, Hilltop Alliance, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and Allegheny County Conservation District, a small planting of native Pennsylvania trees will be completed on Saturday, Nov. 3 in South Side Park along the Sterling Trail from 9 a.m. to noon.

Community members are welcome to help prepare the site, plant and situate the trees for a lifetime of growth.
