New trees planted at the Columbia Tap Trail mark the start of Dakota’s Peace Grove 

The Rotary Club of Houston Skyline, in collaboration with Trees for Houston, recently planted 17 trees along the Columbia Tap Trail at the site of a future pocket park called Dakota’s Peace Grove. The grove is named after a former Rotarian, environmental activist, and Founder of Footprint App Inc, Dakota Stormer, who passed away from cancer last year at the age of 26. For more information on Dakota’s Peace Grove and the tree planting, check out the video below.
