Description: "The Urban Bird & Nature Alliance facilitated the planting of 125 shade trees along the Mandan Park trail on 13th and Missouri Avenue. Community volunteers along with UNO students and interns participated in the event. Bellevue, Creighton and College or St. Mary’s students were also part of the event. The project was an effort to sustain the urban forest along a trail that lost over 68 ash trees. People walk and bike along the trail and need shade. The trees will reduce heat islands as well as improve air quality. Sponsors and funders were the Arbor Day Foundation and the Hubbard Community Forestry Awards. Over 75 families, individuals and students from surrounding schools such as South High and PACE participated. Students, residents and the community at large learns about the importance of the urban forest. They work together to sustain and maintain the tree canopy either in their own neighborhood or park or other neighborhoods and parkland. They learn about the need for trees in barren areas, the infestation of the emerald ash borer on the city ash trees, reducing heat islands, improving air quality and the many benefits of trees. They learn about environmental justice. They also learn how to work together collaboratively to build their own environment which builds on pride of place. Together we leave a legacy of trees behind for ourselves and for future generations.
