Getting started?

Read through our PLANNING AHEAD guidelines for a GREAT ARBOR DAY PROJECT.

From parking to porta-lets, be sure to go through the ADOS Project Checklist to leave no detail overlooked.

Consider collecting volunteer waivers onsite.  The Town of Framingham has provided a sample document here.

SHAMELESSLY MARKET YOURSELF!

MAA recommends using these documents to publicize your participation in Arbor Day of Service!

Sample Press Release:  consider sending a press release before and after volunteering on Arbor Day.  Including photos will help your submission get noticed!  Send the press release well in advance of Arbor Day - the newspaper deadlines come up fast!

Sample Media Advisory: invite the press to check out your crew volunteering on an Arbor Day of Service project.

Sample Opinion Editorial: reach out to your local papers to promote Arbor Day of Service and our mission.
