On Wednesday October 23 from 4:00pm until 7:00pm, the City will be hosting a volunteer tree planting opportunity. Earlier this year, the City removed 200 infected ash trees from Westover Park that have been damaged by emerald ash borers, an invasive species to our area. The tree planting will replace some of the removed ash trees with a diverse mix of native trees in an effort increase tree canopy coverage and tree species diversity throughout the city.

Members of the community are invited to participate in the tree planting event. Supplies will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring gardening gloves and shovels if they have them. Please bring weather appropriate clothing and shoes you don't mind getting dirty.


Participants will need to sign a waiver form, waivers will be signed on Wednesday prior to beginning the planting. 

Please register for this event using the registration link above.
