Moorhead Reforest the Red

Join us as we plant hundreds of trees and shrubs along the Red River!

Development and cultural practices have prevented the natural regeneration of trees along the banks of the river. Planting trees in key 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. A short training will be held throughout the event. The training video is also available here:

Back-up date is June 16

For safety reasons, we ask that one adult is present for every five youth K-8.
