Join Friends of Trees at the first of two plantings this season at Judson Middle School in partnership with the City of Salem and the Salem-Keizer School District. During the first phase of this restoration project we will be planting native trees and shrubs in the open area south of Pringle Creek, however, over the coming years we will plant the understory of the mature Douglas-fir forest and along the north banks of the creek as well. This event is one of many events in support of the Year of the Tree campaign, celebrating Salem's 40th year as a Tree City USA.
Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!
