The City of Fargo Forestry Department, Fargo Park District, River Keepers and Cass County Soil Conservation District invite the public, families and volunteer groups to
celebrate Arbor Day by planting 1,000 trees and shrubs along the Red River. This is fun for the whole family. Come for one hour or all four! There will be short training sessions throughout the evening. Hot dogs and refreshments will be provided while supplies last. Volunteers will dig holes, plant, mulch and water. The purpose of the Reforest the Red event is to replace trees lost to development and cultural practices. The trees along the Red River create a buffer to maintain river bank stability, encourage the growth of native plants, improve water quality (the Red River is Fargo-Moorhead’s drinking water source!), and provide a habitat for river wildlife.
