In Columbia, volunteers are working with the city’s parks and recreation department and other organizations as a part of an Urban Ecology Restoration project that aims to revitalize an area that was once home to a sewer treatment facility. Volunteers planted over 80 trees and 300 shrubs along the MKT trail on Saturday. Elizabeth Trovall went to the planting site off of Forum Boulevard to see how the project will create a lush landscape but also decrease storm water runoff in Columbia.
