The Lansburgh Dog Park in Southwest is getting more shade with the help of a local developer and a D.C. environmental organization.
The JBG Companies and Casey Trees, which seeks to increase the District’s tree canopy, have organized the planting of 10 trees today in the dog park at 1030 Delaware Ave. SW. Volunteers will help put the “teenage” trees in the ground until 1:30 p.m. as part of National Volunteer Week.
“We are a company that believes strongly in giving back to communities — as well as in the importance of sustainable and green practices,” JBG senior vice president Matthew Blocher said in a statement. “Our new corporate partnership with Casey Trees, and today’s tree-planting work, reflects both of these commitments, and we look forward to being a part of more good works.”
The 15,000-square-foot dog park opened in September.
