Foley hosts 38th Annual Arbor Day Celebration

Posted

FOLEY – Foley’s Revitalization and Beautification Advisory Board invites the community to the City’s 38th Annual Celebration of Arbor Day. The event will be held at the Coastal Alabama Farmers and Fishermens Market, located at 20733 Miflin Road, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23.

Foley is recognized as a Tree City and proudly promotes the planting of trees. Trees reduce erosion, cut heating and cooling costs, produce oxygen, provide habitat for wildlife and add beauty to our environment. The Baldwin County Master Gardeners and Certified Arborists will be on hand to answer questions about trees. Boy Scout Troop 77 will assist in distributing trees. An assortment of trees in one and three gallon containers will be available, one per person please. This year’s trees include red maple, nuttall oak, live oak, bald cypress, and Carolina Sapphire (conifer).

Tulip Poplars and Live Oak trees will be dedicated and planted in memory of four special people who loved Foley and made the city a better place because of the time they spent here. Dedications will be made in memory of Dr. Jean Bolton, Al & JoAnn Rea, and Mr. Ollie Underwood.
