Boy Scout Troop 1855 as part of the Adopt a Creek & Trail program planted 22 trees on May 22, 2011 along Willow Creek Trail at E. Bidwell St. Early this year the troop adopted both the Willow Creek and Humbug Creek trails between E. Bidwell and Riley St.
Under the guidance of the City Arborist Mr. Ken Menzer the boys learned how to plant these trees and the use of the innovative Dry Water Gel product that provides the moisture for the newly planted trees.
The boy scouts plan to replenish the Dry Water gels on a monthly basis until the trees no longer need them.

The troop plans to plant more trees later in the fall.
