Minto Island Conservation Area
Join Friends of Trees and the City of Salem in the third and last of three community planting events to be held at the newly opened Minto Island Conservation Area this planting season. We will be planting native trees and shrubs in along the new multi-use path connecting Riverfront Park with the greater Minto Brown Island Park. This event is funded by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board and a Meyer Memorial Trust grant, and is one of many events in support of the Year of the Tree campaign, celebrating Salem’s 40th year as a Tree City USA.
Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!
