Here is what you missed from Riverdale’s National Planting Day…

By Events

On Saturday September 28 2019, The Village of Riverdale partnered with the Student Conservation Association and Chicago Region Trees Initiative to host a Riverdale Planting Day.

This Planting Day happened to land on National Public Lands Day, which is celebrated annually.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers come together on the fourth Saturday in September to assist with various projects designed to restore and enhance public parks, forests, waterways and more. From trail maintenance to tree planting—volunteers of all ages and abilities roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side to care for public lands. The day also features a variety of hikes, bike rides, community festivals, paddling excursions, and other fun outdoor activities—all set on the backdrop of the country’s public lands and waterways.

The Chicago Region Trees Initiative goal is that by 2050, the Chicago Region will support and host a healthier urban forest, comprised of a diversity of tree species and ages, appropriately distributed across land use types in the region.
