Volunteers Needed for Tree Planting Event

Friends of the St. Clair River, in partnership with ReLeaf Michigan and the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, is looking for volunteers to help plant trees along the Blue Water River Walk. The event will take place on October 17th from 8:45 – 12:00 PM.

The Blue Water River Walk is a riverside haven for wildlife and native plants, and this is a hands-on opportunity to add healthy plant life to the landscaping. New trees will improve air and water quality, reduce storm water runoff, and provide many other benefits to the park and the community.

Volunteers are asked to pre-register as a “family unit” or “unit of folks” who have been socially distant together, and equipment sanitization and social distancing will be maintained. Masks are required, and the event will take place rain or shine. Visit scriver.org to learn more.
