Stream Team is seeking volunteers to help plant native trees and shrubs along the upper Deschutes River on Sunday, March 21 from noon to 2 p.m. near Rainier. The new trees will help protect the health of Deschutes River and its salmon by providing shade, food and habitat, and by reducing stormwater runoff and erosion.
The planting will occur rain or shine. Volunteers should bring sturdy shoes or boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Stream Team will provide gloves, tools and refreshments. Volunteers under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
For directions or to register for a carpool, please contact Ann Marie Finan at 754-3355 ext. 6857 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Directions are also available on www.streamteam.info.
