The 12th Annual 1000 Tree Planting Project will be held on Saturday, November 17. Volunteers should meet at the Scout Cabin (417 Fairbank Road) at 10:00 a.m. for a brief teaching seminar. Following the seminar, planting tools and seeds will be distributed and groups will head out to plant seeds along the Des Plaines River. The Scout Cabin will be available to volunteers the entire day and volunteers are welcome to return to the cabin for chili and chicken noodle soup after planting their seeds. There will be a fire in the fireplace for volunteers to warm themselves by. Dress for the weather! For the past three years, snow has fallen during the 1000 Tree Planting Project.
This is a fun activity for the entire family! Planting the tree seeds is easy with the specially designed tools provided to volunteers. All are welcome to join in this wonderful Riverside tradition.
