South Chickamauga Creek Tree Planting Event

Ringgold, Georgia

Saturday March 2nd, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

As part of a larger effort to improve the South Chickamauga Creek Watershed, Limestone Valley RC&D Council has partnered with the City of Ringgold to hold an event at which volunteers can assist with planting tree seedlings in the floodplains of South Chickamauga Creek.   This event will be held along the Nature Trail near downtown Ringgold.  There will be two main stations at which to check-in and pickup the tools and trees for the planting.  After the trees are planted, efforts will be made to remove any trash that was washed up during the recent floods.  Volunteers most interested in planting trees are encouraged to show up early.

Station 1:  Most volunteers will likely want to meet at station 1 since it is centrally located in the park.  This check-in station will be near the Nature Trailhead parking lot (adjacent to the ballfields and pool).

Station2:  This check-in station will be located next to “little five points” at the creek (across the street from the Little General Playground).

Volunteers are encouraged to bring a shovel and RSVP (if convenient).

Please RSVP by contacting Dan Huser of Limestone Valley RC&D Council at dhuser.lvrcd@gmail.com or (423) 544-9076.
