Binzhou, a city situated along the Yellow River, has been working hard to reinforce afforestation efforts to boost ecological protection of China's "mother river".

The ecological conservation and high-quality development of the Yellow River basin is one of China's major national strategies. The Binzhou government has also made efforts in ecological protection and restoration, water conservation, flood control, and inheriting and promoting the Yellow River culture.
