We've planted hundreds of trees, shrubs, and wildflowers at the buffer adjacent to K9 Gunner Memorial Dog Park.
We can use your help to keep up the good work and ensure the success of this project!
This tree planting helps make our community more attractive and slows the flow of stormwater runoff and nonpoint source pollution. Scroll down to view the plan and plant list.
Trees are our last and best defense against nonpoint source pollution. Trees increase the amount of water that filters into the soil, reduce runoff and increase groundwater infiltration. This protects streams, recharges aquifers and supports a consistent flow of drinkable water.
Nonpoint source pollution comes from so many places you cannot simply point a finger and say there's the problem. It comes from our backyards, schools, malls, parking lots and roads... and it is the biggest source of water pollution in the USA.
