TREES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION
RFH Roots & Shoots members joined other community volunteers to plant 800 trees, plants, and shrubs near Shiffler Park, restoring the riparian area along a tributary to Beaverton Creek. The planting was part of the "Tree for All" event co-sponsored by the City of Beaverton and Clean Water Services. The ambitious goal of Tree for All is to plant two million trees in the Tualatin River Valley in 20 years. Streams lined with native vegetation provide cleaner, cooler water, better flood management, and fish and wildlife habitat. It's good for the water and fish, and it's good for people and our community too!
