Newcastle Arbor Day Tree Planting 2013

Thanks, to all dedicated volunteers for an "over the top" success with the Newcastle event! Volunteers and City staff rolled up their sleeves for the Newcastle Arbor Day observance Saturday, October 26, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We reached our goal of planting over 600 trees and under story plants in the China Creek restoration area.This year's focus was on China Creek, behind Regency Newcastle, at the southeast corner of Coal Creek Parkway and Newcastle Golf Club Road.Thank you to all who participated!
  
Benefits of the plantings include reducing erosion, providing shade to keep stream temperatures cool, improving salmon spawning habitat, providing food and shelter for animals and creating micro climates, enabling things to grow like native flowers and fungi.
