We've been busy with our Fall Plantings this month, as this time of year is one of the best times to plant trees and shrubs!
Our team, along with the park rangers and six volunteers from Alcoa, were out at the Settlers Cabin this past week working on additional plantings made possible by the Peaceable Kingdom Fund.
We planted 100 trees and shrubs in a riparian area in Settlers Cabin Park. This planting was a continuation of plantings that we did this past spring, another great time to plant, of 250 trees and shrubs.
These plantings will help to minimize erosion during storms that cause flooding into the floodplain and help soak up excess water.
