PARKVILLE, Mo. - Parkville, Mo., residents and city officials, along with local Girl Scouts and staffers from the regional office of the Environmental Protection Agency, took part in a tree-planting project Thursday at the city's English Landing Park, which lost nearly 100 trees during last year's flooding along the Missouri River.
Thursday’s tree-planting was called an early celebration of Earth Day (April 22) and Arbor Day (April 27).
English Landing Park is a 68-acre facility with a boat ramp, walking trails, a playground, picnic shelters, and sports fields. The park hosts several annual community events.
