1,000 New Trees Going in Along Red River

Posted: Updated:

For the ninth year the City of Fargo, Fargo Park district, River Keepers and Cass County Soil Conservation will plant around 1,000 new trees and shrubs along the Red River in Fargo.

This year the plants will go in on Dike East, 100 2nd St. South. in an effort to create a buffer and maintain river bank stability. The plants will also encourage growth of native plants, provide habitat for wildlife and even improve the quality of drinking water.

Volunteers will be needed to help plant, dig, mulch and water the new plants. Planting will take place at Dike East from 4-7 p.m. and volunteers should bring gloves along with a shovel and wear long pants and boots.

Don't worry if you're not a tree planting expert, the park district will be on hand and teach you how to properly plant a tree. Hot dogs and refreshments will be provided for volunteers while supplies last. To volunteer call 701-235-2895 or email christine@riverkeepers.org
