BYRON — The Byron Forest Preserve District will distribute free oak tree seedlings donated from the Living Lands & Waters Million Tree Project starting April 15 at the Jarrett Prairie Center, 7993 N. River Road.

Local Ogle County residents can take up to 10 seedlings each while supplies last. The seedling can be found at the center’s front drive.

The Million Trees Project was initiated in 2007 to help further the Living Lands and Waters mission to protect, preserve and restore the natural environment of the nation’s major rivers and their watersheds. The mission is to not only clean up the riverways but to also enhance the watershed by planting native trees and removing invasive plants.
