Mounds Park Tree Planting

Join Urban Roots and Mississippi Park Connection for a tree planting event on September 27th at Burns Ave Scenic Overlook near Willowbrook a floodplain forest we've have been restoring for the past 5 years! We’re transplanting trees from community gravel bed nurseries (including the 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.
