Celebrate both Earth Day and Arbor Day by planting trees in Colonial Park on Saturday, April 27.

Weed Out! Racine, Sierra Club and the City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services have 175 small trees and shrubs to plant in the lower section of Colonial Park. We are reconstructing the ecosystem that was severely impacted by the emerald ash borer.

Meet at the Root River Steelhead Facility, 2200 Domanik Drive, at 9 a.m. We will work until noon. Dress for the weather with long trousers, sturdy shoes, and socks into which you can tuck your pants. There is a restroom on site, but please bring your own drinking water. Any questions contact melissa.warner3@a2q.com .
