Fargo Reforest the Red
Join us as we plant thousands of trees and shrubs along the Red River!
Development and cultural practices have prevented the trees’ natural regeneration along the river’s banks. Planting trees in critical areas along the Red creates a buffer to maintain riverbank stability, encourage the growth of native plants, improve water quality, and provide habitat for river wildlife. Trees reduce air pollution, cool the atmosphere, prevent soil erosion, ease the severity of floods and decrease maintenance costs of roads and parking areas.
Volunteers will dig holes, plant, mulch, and water more giant trees that range from 5-7 ft tall. A short training will be held throughout the event.
Back up weather date is September 13.
