Description


FRIENDSHIP FOREST-Planting Party

Come help us grow the next 150 years of our city! All ages are welcome to join the tree planting party on the banks of the Mississippi River. When you arrive you get assigned a new friend and tree. Together with the help of trained volunteers and arborist you will plant your tree, name your tree, and adopt your tree. Through the Friendship Forest website planting partners will be connected to their tree and receive updates on its health and reminders to visit.

This will be a fun filled day celebrating the urban canopy, the mighty Mississippi river and our future! There will be music and free snacks!
