Want to get dirty and help grow your community?

Planting in the mud. The Lents Springwater Habitat Restoration Project is a community group that facilitates tree plantings by local kids on the Springwater Corridor in the Lents neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. Don't be afraid of the mud; the end result is a restoration of the native habitat. Dig around in this website — you'll learn a bit about this successful project and you even might want to get more closely involved.

"Planting trees is a good thing, but for me it’s about the kids;
I want them to take some pride and ownership in their neighborhood."

— Ed Kerns
