PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

The River Discovery Center announced on Tuesday, February 16, that it is partnering with Living Lands & Water, an environmental organization based in East Moline, Illinois, on their Million Trees Project.

The Center will be offering 1,000 free saplings to the public.

The project began in 2007, with the purpose to help protect, preserve and restore the natural environment of our nation's major rivers and their watersheds.

The goal is to plant and grow one million trees in order to re-establish native, nut-bearing and hardwood trees along waterways and within communities. Since the program began, LLW has distributed over 871,278 trees and will likely reach their goal of 1,000,000 trees this year, giving someone in Paducah the opportunity to be the one millionth tree recipient.

The Center will be offering a choice of Bur Oak or Swamp White Oak saplings.

The saplings, will be bagged and available for pickup at the River Discovery Center mid April. Saplings are available free to any family, business or organization.

You can contact the Center at 270-575-9958 to place your order. Orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
