Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The banks of the Red are going green in Fargo.
Community members of all ages headed out to Dike East for "Reforest the Red".
Volunteers took part in a tree planting event. Complete with digging, mulching, watering, and planting more than 1-thousand new trees to line the river.
Event organizers say the trees will help improve bank stability, encourage more green growth, and improve water quality.
Jeff Haberman- Fargo Parks Forester: "You know there's families out here, I mean there's single and couples of people, so I just think that this is a good opportunity to give back to our community."
