Save the Dates: Reforest NKY on April 24th & October 23rd, 2021
The annual volunteer event, Reforest NKY, will be partnering with ReNewport and splitting up into two events in 2021. The seedling giveaway, Trunk A Tree, will take place on Saturday, April 24th, 2021, from 9:00am to 11:00am in Campbell County at the Campbell County Public Library - Newport Branch (901 E 6th Street, Newport, KY 41071). Join Northern Kentucky Urban and Community Forestry Council in the parking lot in the comfort of your own car to collect a native tree to plant in your own yard - reforesting Northern Kentucky on your own terms! A ‘Grab N Go’ educational packet will also be available. COVID-19 protocols will be in place.
Reforest NKY will resume on October 23rd, 2021, with planting trees alongside the I-471 North Exit 5 Ramp. More details will be announced in the Fall on the Northern Kentucky Urban and Community Forestry Council’s website and Facebook page.
Reforest NKY is organized by the Northern Kentucky Urban and Community Forestry Council to restore Kentucky’s native woodlands. This reforestation project is responsible for planting thousands of tree seedlings and saplings on previously mowed properties in Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties. This event is an opportunity for public education and awareness about the importance of trees in our region. By planting trees, our forest landscape and legacy is restored! Trees and forests provide significant, measurable benefits to our communities by improving the environment, economy, and our quality of life. Over the last 13 years, more than 40 acres (that’s 30 football fields!) of land have been planted with native woodland trees and over 2,500 volunteers have participated in Reforest NKY. We are looking for sponsors for 2021. Please contact the Reforest NKY Committee Chair to learn more.
