Hundreds Of Industry Professionals Will Volunteer to Enhance the Ground at Arlington National Cemetery and The National Mall
(Fairfax, VA., May 2, 2022) —On Monday, July 18, hundreds of landscape and lawn care professionals will convene at Arlington National Cemetery and on the National Mall to offer their specialized skills to install plants, protect the historic trees, enhance the turf, and improve irrigation systems.
Renewal & Remembrance, organized by the National Association of Landscape Professionals, is a special event for members, many of whom have been attending for more than 20 years.
“Renewal & Remembrance is a wonderful opportunity for members to give back and to showcase the skills our industry uses every day to care for these important spaces for our nation,” said NALP CEO Britt Wood.
During this year’s service project on the National Mall, volunteers will create landscape beds around the existing plants that surround the Lincoln Memorial. The location of this year’s volunteer project on the Mall is significant, as 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial.
The projects at Arlington National Cemetery include top dressing turf, renovating irrigation zones, installing lightning protection on designated trees, and installing new plants.
In addition, NALP will once again host the popular Children’s Program at both Arlington National Cemetery and the Lincoln Memorial.
Renewal & Remembrance is supported by many industry partners who donate equipment and team member support, including lead partners Caterpillar and John Deere with additional support from SiteOne.
