Each April, Rivergrove celebrates Arbor Day.
Residents gathered in Heritage Park in celebration of Arbor Month 2018. Councilor Arne Nyberg planted an Oregon White Oak in the savanna and oversaw the planting of twelve pussy willow twigs. Several more native tree species, provided by the City, will be planted in Rivergrove yards.
Copies of the Rivergrove Reads book Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants were distributed at the Little Free Libraries around town.
Residents gathered at the home of Councilor Brenda Ruble to watch the documentary Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home, based on the Rivergrove Reads book Bringing Nature Home.
In honor of Arbor Day 2017, the City gave out free native tree seedlings to residents: bitter cherry, cascara, Oregon white oak, and western red cedar. See if you can spot them planted around the City.
