Three folks who helped organize the redwood planting in Landsburg Park in the Cedar River Watershed on Oct 22, 2017 are, from left to right, Julie Swanson, who got the whole thing started by asking, “Can redwoods be planted in the Cedar River Watershed?”, Philip Stielstra who leads the Moving the Giants to Puget Sound project, and Amy LaBarge, Natural Resources Manager for the Cedar River Watershed. Also in the picture are Amy’s two daughters who helped with the planting: Emily (in yellow coat) and Sarah (in green coat).

Here’s the group that assembled at Landsburg Park on Sunday, Oct 22, 2017 to plant five redwoods. These are mostly kids from Plant for the Planet and their parents, but also includes Amy LaBarge and her two daughters, Emily (in yellow coat) and Sarah (in green coat).

Here’s a look at all five trees, each planted near one of the engraved rocks that can be seen in the distance and in some of the next photos taken before the trees were planted.

Landsburg Park in the spring of 2017 before the redwoods were planted in Oct 2017. This was one of three places in the Cedar River Watershed under consideration for planting a grove of coast redwoods.

When you look more closely at the rocks in Landsburg Park, you can see the engravings.

There are five such engraved rocks at Landsburg Park.
