Save the date: Thursday, May 24th, 3:00-5:00 p.m. Tree Planting – We’ll talk about and demonstrate selection and different methods of planting trees – from small seedlings to balled/burlapped ornamental trees. Participants will take home a small seedling to plant. Meet at Belfast City Park on Northport Avenue.
