Local conservation and neighborhood activists are inviting Lancaster residents to Lancaster Cemetery to plant trees and clean up the grounds.

The community event runs from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 6. Volunteers will help plant five large trees and more than 50 smaller ones, as well as weed, mulch and pick up trash. They will also have the opportunity to pick up a free native tree or shrub for their homes.

The project is being organized by the Northeast Neighbors United community group in partnership with the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership, Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, the City of Lancaster, BSA Troop 99, Pinelands Nursery & Supply and the office of state Rep. Mike Sturla.
