We walk past it each Wednesday... here's a chance to make the Forum Nature Area a little more personal.
Planting Location: We will be planting off-trail, fairly close to the parking area.
Provided: The Parks and Rec Department will provide all the tools...and the trees.
You should bring: You just bring some sturdy boots, water bottles, weather-appropriate clothing, and your favorite pair of work gloves.
What to expect: Dave Dittmer (the head forester for Columbia Parks and Rec) will teach us and other volunteers the most effective way to plant very young seedling trees. An official proclamation signed by Mayor McDavid will be read during the event to thank all the tree planters for their service. Other volunteers from different organizations will be there, too, so this is a chance to meet some new folks with similar interests.
What's the goal? To prevent storm erosion into Hinkson Creek. This event was created between the several different nonprofits. Any interested folks in the Columbia Walkers and Hikers group are welcome to attend. We're looking to plant about 1,300 trees, and we need 20 to 30 people total to make it a success.
