Colman Park - Earth-Giving11/09/2019
Give thanks by giving back and planting trees! Join Friends of Colman Park for our fall planting event.
With incredible community support, we have worked hard all year to clear some areas of the park near the P-Patch of invasive species and ready the ground for new seedlings!
Now it is time to put our new plants into the ground before the winter rains to give them the best chance of survival. We have over 600 trees, shrubs and ferns to get into the ground and would love to have you join us! Come learn about and help restore your local urban forests!
