Willowbrook tree planting

Join Urban Roots and Mississippi Park Connection for a tree planting event on Saturday, Sept.15, 9 a.m. to noon, at Willowbrook DNR Preserve, 1200 Warner Road. Willowbrook is a floodplain forest that has been restored over the past five years. Organizers will be transplanting trees from community gravel bed nurseries — including the Urban Roots one at Rivoli Bluffs Urban Farm and Restoration Site — to the park in order to build resilience in forested areas that will be losing tree canopy to emerald ash borer, an invasive pest.This event is free and open to the public. There are limited spots and registration is required. Register at http://parkconnection.org/event/tree-planting-pigseye-2018.
