More Mohr Trees! Earth Day Planting Workday
Earth Day tree planting! ParkLands partnered with the Ecology Action Center to plant 5,000 trees at Mohr Preserve in early April as part of EAC’s initiative to plant 100,000 in McLean County over the next decade. The event was cut short by rain, so nearly 1,000 trees still need to be planted before they dry out. Two shifts are available next Friday, 4/23; 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm:
Directions to Mohr Tract. Tools and heavy equipment will be in use and all volunteers must be able to safely use hand tools as well as follow all prescribed COVID-19 safety protocols including wearing face masks and keeping appropriate distances from other volunteers. Each shift is limited to 45 volunteers. More details, such as parking, will be sent to registrants prior to the workday
