** CANCELED** United Way Day of Caring

September 18 at 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

**Update 9/14: Due to smoke and poor air quality, this event has been canceled. 

Pacific Bonsai Museum’s Day of Caring

Spend this United Way Day of Caring outside, with (new) friends from your community helping maintain a healthy, beautiful forest around Pacific Bonsai Museum!

You will be doing valuable jobs like raking, clearing forest debris, pulling weeds, trimming ivy, and clearing fallen needles from the bonsai exhibits. No particular skills are needed for this work—just your willingness to help and your ability to move around, bend, and lift light loads. Please note that due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, we are limiting the number of volunteers and thus are requiring pre-registration to attend.

The Pacific Bonsai Museum is an outdoor Museum and will provide masks/PPE and encourage social distancing measures. We are limiting the number of volunteers to ensure that volunteers can spread out while they are volunteering on our spacious grounds.

The Museum will offer snacks, coffee, and other beverages; you can bring your own lunch if you would like to eat lunch on site. Tools and work gloves will be available for you to use and share; but if you have your own favorite gloves, rakes, pruners, and/or hand shovels, you are welcome to bring those. Please dress appropriately for being outside in the weather (i.e. cold, rain).

Parents: if you would like to bring children with you, those who can help and don’t need a lot of supervision are welcome.

Thank you for your time and service!
