Celebrate Arbor Day with a Tree Planting Workshop
You are invited to learn about: Selecting trees and shrubs for Fairbanks, Site selection, Planting and Tree Care. Why? Trees add more than color and beauty to our towns. Trees and other plants reduce runoff, prevent soil erosion, and keep the water in our rivers and lakes clean. Trees provide screening, absorb noise, and can act as buffers between different land uses. Forests provide homes for birds and wildlife and natural places to recreate. They bring nature into our neighborhoods.
Where: ThrivAlaska, located at 1949 Gilliam Way Fairbanks, AK
When: Monday May 18th at 5:00pm
Tanana Valley Watershed Association and ThrivAlaska will announce the winner of the 2015 Green Up Day Raffle!
