Arlington stormwater wetland tree-planting set for Nov. 12
November 1, 2011 · 3:46 PM
ARLINGTON — Sound Salmon Solutions and the city of Arlington are teaming up to plant native trees and shrubs at the community's new stormwater wetland on Nov. 12.
Between 80-100 volunteers of all ages will be needed between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day. While they should dress for the weather, event organizers will provide tools, water and lunch.
Along the way, volunteers will learn what a stormwater wetland does, which native trees and shrubs should be planted in one, and what types of birds and other wildlife will make it their habitat.
This family-friendly event is open to the public and promises not only lunch in the Roundhouse, but also booths and displays by local organizations.
To register, please contact Sound Salmon Solutions Volunteer Coordinator Michele Harmeling at 425-319-7696 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
