Come make a difference with the StreamTeam on Saturday, October 22!

Not only will we come together as a community to celebrate the volunteer spirit but we will also plant hundreds of native trees. Each tree will do its part to clean the air that we breathe, the water we drink and provide habitat for the animals we enjoy. Be prepared to have a good time, get your hands dirty, meet new people, and make a difference in our community!

No experience is necessary. We will provide morning refreshments plus all of the training and tools. Breakfast is being donated by Kroger and Starbucks.  Lunch is generously being provided by Chipotle, Corwin Beverage, Frito Lay, and Twin Star Credit Union.  And a special thanks to Waste Connections for helping keep our event sustainable with recycling and composting services.

This event will focus on hand pulling English ivy from the existing native trees onsite to protect them from being over taken by this shade-tolerant invasive plant. There will be a great sense of immediate gratification at the end of this event!
