Today is a big day for Five Mile Dam Park.

Heavily damaged by the floods in May and October, the park is getting a solid footing on the road to recovery thanks to TreeFolks and AmeriCorps, who will plant seedlings that are hoped to one day replace the mature trees that were lost to the rushing water.
