You might assume that there's plenty of food & shelter for the wildlife along our mighty rivers in the Quad Cities...but you'd be wrong.  Hardwood trees have either been chopped down for fuel & building materials or knocked down by flooding and disease.  Many species along the river have left or died because the current trees provide no value for wildlife.

This sounds like a job for....(dun dun dun-dun) Chad Pregracke!

Living Lands & Waters is hosting a Million Tree Project on where they'll be  weed pulling so their oak saplings can grow and thrive

Friday, June 26th @ 9-12PM

Tuesday, June 30th @ 9-12PM

Wednesday, July 1st @ 9-12PM

This event will take place at Living Lands & Waters Tree Nursery 6000 Eastern Ave, Davenport, Iowa.  They'll be requiring social distancing.  Good news there is plenty of room to spread out.  Bring the kids out & maybe a kneeling pad to save your knees.
