The Columbia St. Tree Brigade kickoff event - this Saturday!!!


This Saturday, 4/10/10, come out to the first meeting of the Columbia St. Tree Brigade! We will be aerating, mulching, and watering street trees along Columbia St. between Atlantic and Hamilton (side streets to come at a later date). This process will help protect the trees as well as help them grow and thrive! This is a great opportunity to meet people, do something positive for the local environment, and beautify our area!

Meet in front of 145 Columbia St. (across from the Greenway).

The Parks Dept. is generously providing a large amount of mulch and tools to make this happen.

Feel free to bring kids, friends, family, and neighbors! This will be a great learning experience for all.

Email me at cbarker1{at}gmail.com with any questions.

What about the plastic bags stuck in the trees? I would really like to see the plastic bags removed. Anyways, I'll try and make it on Saturday.

If anyone has some sort of tool that can reach the plastic bags mentioned above, then we can take those down as well!

Hope to see you Saturday

do you think anything can be done about the poor cats that live in the trash behind the fence?

should we call animal control? or would that be worse for them?
