Tree planting event Monday in SL, volunteers needed
A Storm Lake Tree Planting Celebration is planned for Monday at
the site of the future Russell Street Park, the former Joyce's
Greenery location at Russell and 5th Street. The public is
welcome, and volunteers are invited to help plant 75 trees after
the morning presentation.
Jeff Jensen, Trees Forever field coordinator, Alliant Energy
Customer Operations Manager Randy Brummer, city officials and
state officials, and members of the Mayor's Advisory Committee
for Parks, Trails and Urban Forestry are expected to take part.
Events begin at 9:30 a.m., with a "Science of Planting Trees"
demonstration shortly before tree plantings begin at 10 a.m. City
officials expect that the planting may take more than one day,
depending on how many volunteers attend.
