UPDATE: Due to the wet conditions and inclement weather, the tree planting event scheduled for June 22 will be postponed until June 29. At this time we cannot confirm whether Representative Axne will be available on this alternative date, but we encourage volunteers to join Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation and Clive Parks & Recreation in planting the trees needed to complete the city’s oxbow restoration.
INHF will work to create additional opportunities for Iowans to advocate for nature and share their story with people that shape public policy.
Join Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, Clive Parks & Recreation, and U.S. Representative Cindy Axne for an exciting opportunity to get outdoors and advocate for nature. We will be working to replant native trees along the Greenbelt Trail to help complete the city’s oxbow restoration project. Volunteers will have an opportunity to meet Representative Axne and share their support of natural resource conservation and outdoor recreation in Iowa. RSVP appreciated but not required.
About the Clive Greenbelt Trail
The Clive Greenbelt Trail winds its way along Walnut Creek through scenic, heavily wooded areas. Along the trail, markers identify trees, shrubs and wildflowers. The trail also links many parks and recreation areas, including a connection to the 87-mile Raccoon River Valley Trail. INHF sees trails as a connection to nature — a scenic, recreational and healthy way for people to get outdoors and experience the natural world around them.

Clive Greenbelt Trail: The tree planting site will be near 108th Street on the west side of the trail. Volunteers should park at the Clive Aquatic Center (1801 NW 114th Street, Clive) and then walk to the location. Go across the trail bridge and head back east on the main Greenbelt Trail. It’s a short walk and you’ll see the parks maintenance staff set up.
