Henderson Park Tree Planting Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
This is a brand new county park and the first to be built on the south end of our county. While our organization has planted trees in the coastal Bryan County area (400 since 2002) these are the first we’ve planted in partnership with Bryan County. We’re excited to have the County officials recognize the value of our efforts and assist us in enhancing this wonderful new facility for our community. CBFT planted 40 trees at the park in early spring. With these additional trees our total will be 100. This will be our first NeighborWoods event and we’re excited to participate!

Date: October 25, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Highway 144 in Richmond Hill.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
