LA Galaxy Provides Tree Care at Griffith Park in Celebration of Earth Day

Earlier today, AEG’s LA Galaxy staff and community volunteers worked alongside TreePeople, a 3-year LA Galaxy partner that inspires people in Los Angeles to take personal responsibility for the urban forest, to provide tree care throughout the Bette Davis Picnic Area at Griffith Park in Los Angeles. Staff and volunteers built water basins, pulled weeds, watered trees, spread mulch and adjusted tree stakes and ties to ensure straight tree growth.

In conjunction with Earth Day on April 22, the event was part of LA Galaxy Foundation Fridays, a series of monthly community service initiatives in the Los Angeles area throughout the 2017 LA Galaxy season. Foundation Fridays’ community service projects feature LA Galaxy staff, alumni, Academy teams, alliance clubs and supporter groups in one-day volunteer opportunities each month.
