Living Lands & Waters needs volunteers next week for its MillionTrees project.
The project by the East Moline nonprofit organization founded by Chad Pregracke is designed to improve the health of rivers re-establishing hardwoods that have been depleted by over-harvesting, flooding and disease.
Volunteers will help bundle trees in newspaper, dip roots in water and place trees in bags. Volunteers are asked to wear warm clothes that can get dirty, and children must be supervised.
Volunteers will be needed from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. March 28-31 in the North Hall of the QCCA Expo Center, 2621 4th Ave., Rock Island. Registration is recommended for groups of 10 or more by contacting coordinator Ashley Stover at or 309-737-5913.
