Ridgefield -- Thanks to the hard work of 85 volunteers, the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge has 436 more trees than it did before Jan. 16, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

This was the largest volunteer turnout in refuge history, a fitting way to honor the legacy of King, according to the Friends of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge newsletter. The restoration team planted Oregon ash and red osier dogwood trees near Middle Lake.
