Detroit – October 1, 2006. The Greening of Detroit today announced that it will plant/maintain 14 trees as part of their Gabriel Richard Park Planting. This event is one of more than 100 regreening efforts throughout the country being promoted during October, which has been declared National NeighborWoods Month by the national nonprofit, the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT). The Greening of Detroit is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.
This park is part of the Detroit Riverfront Riverwalk, a landmark for runners and bikers. The Greening will be working hard to beautify the park so that it can provide a great view for everyone who comes in contact with the area.
“It’s great to be working on an important regreening effort at a time when other organizations are doing so as well,” said Rebecca Salminen Witt. “Part of our goal is to draw attention to the good work being done at the grassroots level all across the country to improve urban and community forests.”
The Greening of Detroit’s celebration will take place as follows:
Oct 21, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Call for location.
