Volunteers Planting Trees At Rouge Park

Planting trees at Rouge Park

More than 200 volunteers of all ages joined Fund staff members at the tree-planting event at  Rouge Park. The park has long been a popular destination for families to picnic, swim and play outdoors. There is a golf course and driving range, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, playgrounds, bike trails, campsites  and swimming pools. But in recent years, like much of Detroit, the park has fallen on hard times—prompting the community to get involved in restoration efforts. Photo by Ivan LaBianca.
