We met at the plant site opposite Dennys Crt. This was our National Plant Day in 2010. The plants have grown so well that now we are able to remove most of the bags and stakes. Thank you to all the helpers who planted at this site in 2010. We also did some weeding.
We returned to the National Tree Day plant. We had lots of helpers and did a marvelous job planting out this section of the creek. Now all we need to do is back-fill with grasses.
