    Organization: Hamilton County Soil & Water Conservation District

    Help in planting 700 trees in the riverbank! These trees will provide shade and habitat for fish and other wildlife, stabilize the eroding riverbanks, reduce sediment pollution, and take up pollution from the water and air.

    We will be planting approximately 700 “live stakes” (tree cuttings) into eroded banks of the Great Miami River.  This work will be done from within the river channel.  There will be opportunities to plant from canoes or the access the banks overland.  Plan to get your feet wet! 


    This event will take place Saturday, April 28, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. A follow up event will be held  which will also serve as the rain date should the March 24 event need to be cancelled due to unsuitable conditions.

    Adults & Teenagers accompanied by a parent/guardian (ages 15+).  Please register here to insure we have the correct size tee-shirt and lunch provided for you.  You will also be asked if you prefer to access the river by canoe or overland.  Canoes provided by Rivers Unlimited (Volunteer owned canoes/kayaks welcome)!


    Meet at Heritage Park in Colerain Township (groups will disperse to planting site from there).
