Summer Solstice Tree Planting


What better way to celebrate the beginning of summer than to spend the afternoon outside helping our beloved Poudre River?!  Support river restoration and clean water by helping the Natural Areas Department plant 400 native shrubs and trees that will provide much needed food and habitat to local wildlife.  This is a family-friendly volunteer project; all volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  We’ll finish the day with an icy-cold treat and prizes to thank you for all your hard work! 

Thursday, June 26, 1-4 p.m. location and details given upon required registration.
