Photos from Reforest Spokane Day

Posted By on Sat, Oct 25, 2014 at 3:30 PM

The Lands Council's fourth annual Reforest Spokane Day had staff members and volunteers planting trees at five different locations in Spokane County. At a location on S. Valley Chapel Rd., near Hangman Creek, the organization's Conservation Programs Director Kat Hall said, "We like to just get as many people from the community involved, kids, families, to help us plant trees to improve our water and improve our environment." Over 60 volunteers planted about 200 trees, including willows, cottonwoods, quaking aspens, sitka alders and ponderosa pines, were planted in the location near Hangman Creek. An expected 200-250 volunteers will plant about 1,000 trees at all five locations. "Those trees will ultimately help keep soil in place, stop erosion. They will help to filter out pollutants that are coming off the land." Hall said, speaking about the specific trees planted, "They'll also provide shade eventually that will control the temperature, keep it lower and provide habitat."
