Lake Wheeler Tree Planting – Swift Creek Week

Swift Creek Week

Lake Wheeler Tree Planting Event

Saturday March 25, 2017 @ 9:00AM to 12:00PM

Location: Lake Wheeler Park, 6404 Lake Wheeler Road, Raleigh, NC 27603

Join us in planting trees to help protect your watershed from pollutants such as sediment and nutrients. Forests help to keep water clean in many ways, including slowing down rainwater flow which allows it to be filtered through the soil before it enters streams and lakes. Trees also help prevent erosion of soil, and they provide shade for streams which keeps water temperatures in check during the summer.

Please wear appropriate clothing for tree planting (no open-toed shoes). Light refreshments will be provided.
