RiverLink starts its annual tree giveaway

Need a tree, but short of cash? Want to learn more about what RiverLink is and does? Ever wondered what that weird circle of rocks off Riverside Drive is?

Come and get all these needs met, answers, and more at RiverLink annual tree giveaway.

Located at the “Labyrinth” site at the old cotton mill ruin (124 Riverside Drive, about 1/2 mile north of 12Bones, on the right). RiverLink staff will be there until 5 and will help you load them.

Call RiverLink’s Dave Russell if you have questions: 252-8474, ext. 11.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community.

Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service.
