Earth Day – Free tree distribution

Join us on April 24, 25 and 26 for Earth Day activities. It’s an opportunity to learn more about our environment and help protect it better.

To mark the occasion, trees will be distributed free of charge at the Public Works Yard on Saturday, April 25. An online reservation form will be available on March 12 at 4 p.m. for you to choose your tree species ahead of time and avoid the wait on the day of the distribution. You can pick up your tree at any time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The first 100 people to reserve a tree online can get a free rain barrel.
