Help Wood River Land Trust (WRLT) finish the Hailey Greenway restoration project by buying and planting a tree. WRLT will be re-vegetating the area just south of Lions Park, after the new pedestrian bridge is built and the cranes are gone. We want to plant nearly 1,000 trees and shrubs to replace the non-native species removed from the area.
A gift of can buy one shrub. A gift of can buy one tree. A gift of student’s time (volunteering in Fall of 2012 to plant your tree or shrub) will save WRLT almost ,000 in labor and equipment rental fees.
Choose your plant from: Serviceberry, Wild Rose, Golden Currant or Poplar Trees. Students can even dedicate their tree or shrub to honor of their parents, grandparents, teacher or friend. If tehy do, WRLT will send a letter with a photo of you and your plant to those they’ve honored. Students will always have this special place to go with the person(s) they’ve honored, and WRLT will be happy to escort them when they visit.
A living plant provides numerous benefits over its lifetime, including adding beauty to our lives, providing a food source, purifying the air we breath and providing shelter for wildlife.
Join us to plant a tree and watch it grow.
