Nature At The Confluence celebrates Earth Day with a free oak sapling distribution!

The public is invited to pick up the bare-root saplings at Nature At The Confluence on April 12 from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 13 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (or while supplies last). We will have red oak, burr oak, white oak, and pecan saplings available and you can take up to two per household. Each sapling is 1-2 feet long and will need to be planted in a pot or in the ground within a few days of pick up. While the saplings are available for free, we suggest a $10 donation per sapling. Half of our stock will be available on Friday and the other half on Saturday, and saplings are first come first served. 

NEW: On Friday, April 12th, stick around to make and decorate a notebook using upcycled materials. Our craft station will be available indoors from 12:00-3:00pm and is open to all ages.

This is the 14th year that the Rock River Trail will distribute oak saplings along the Rock River corridor, with over 137,000 trees given away thanks to Chad Pregracke, president of Living Lands and Waters located in East Moline, Ill.  Nature At The Confluence hosts the visitor center of the Rock River Trail, a 320-mile National Water Trail that winds through Wisconsin and Illinois.
