Thanks to everyone who came out to help today. We planted 47 trees of 13 different species: bur oak, red oak, Chinkapin oak, Hill's oak, catalpa, black walnut, black cherry, hackberry, ironwood, Kentucky coffee tree, magnolia, hickory and hornbeam.

We had help from TreeKeepers, Greencorps, Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago, several folks from Riverdale and several who live in West Pullman near the trail.

Yes, there will be a lot more than two. If anyone else reading here is planning to join us, please respond here. Should be a good day.
