Miami River treeplanting postponed

Weather stalls plans for green way restoration project

The Miami River Streamkeepers and Village of Harrison Hot Springs Ave. had to postpone a March 3 tree planting opportunity.

The public planting of the 300-block Miami River Greenway is postponed on account of the inclement weather, says Janne Perrin, from the Streamkeepers.

It is rescheduled to March 24 at 10 a.m. Those wishing to volunteer should meet at the Fred Hardy Bridge located between the 200 and 300-block Miami River Drive at 10 o’clock in the morning.

Coffee, cookies and juice will be available.

Tools are provided.  Wear gloves, boots and dress for the weather. Restoration of the native plant cover is key to continued enjoyment of the Miami River Greenway, Perrin adds.
