CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!
JOIN US… 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at 733 Hite Street in the Nations neighborhood Nov 21 to help plant trees on Richland Creek. This is our last tree planting for 2015.
We need 20 volunteers! We will mostly be planting small specimens, so this event is appropriate for all ages. Children need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Feel free to bring your own shovels and gloves.
Use our volunteer form to let us know you plan to be there Nov 21, so we have plenty of supplies on hand. Wear your digging clothes, work shoes or boots, and dress for current weather conditions. Contact us with questions, or if you have a group that wants to help. Supplies and lunch are provided.
Volunteers for this event will be making a positive, long-lasting change for Richland Creek habitats and its wildlife. Healthy riparian buffers are the single most important component for maintaining a healthy and thriving stream. Trees stabilize the bank and prevent erosion; absorb stormwater and filter-out pollution, control flooding, help to maintain healthy levels of oxygen for fish and aquatic life, and provide food and habitat for other wildlife.
