Heartland Tree Alliance, in partnership with the Project Blue River Rescue, will plant riparian seedlings along the Blue River in Kansas City, Missouri. Riparian areas are the interface between land and a river or stream.These areas are significant in environmental management because of their role in soil conservation, habitat biodiversity and the influence they have on fauna and aquatic ecosystems.


Bonus! Project Blue River Rescue’s famous hot dog lunch and stream team t-shirts will be provided after the workday (while supplies last)!
