Outdoor Outfitters Make Public Lands a Success

On Saturday September 26, Under the direction of RRF seventy-five volunteers planted over 120 native tress in the west section of the Milwaukee River Valley between North Avenue and Locust Street.
The tree planting was in celebration of National Public Lands Day (NPLD). NPLD is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy

The trees were purchased with a grant by the outdoor equipment and apparel manufacturer Patagonia. The grant was only able to be secured by help of Milwaukee's oldest outfitter, Laacke & Joys.
