Plant trees along the Red River

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.

    Thanks to all the energetic volunteers who helped get all 1000+ trees and shrubs planted along the Red River in record time! If you happened to get any pictures, could you email them to me at [masked]? Our volunteer photographer came during what is usually the busiest time of the evnt, but everything was already planted.

    Huge turnout. Kudos to the publicity team. Cliche is still true-many hands make small work out of big jobs.

    River Keepers is working with the City of Moorhead on some riparian plantings that will take place early June. It might be possible to join another group to help plant trees and shrubs. I can either post on here or you can email me separately at [masked].

    Wish I could go but I'm heading out of town that day! Can this group do this another time, even though Arbor Day only comes once a year?!

    Take University Dr to 48th Avenue South (on the east side of University Dr), park on the frontage road and walk towards the Red River. You'll see some picnic tables, mulch truck, and water truck.
