Brightside is putting out a call for volunteers this Saturday to help expand Metro Louisville’s tree canopy with a Community-Wide Planting Day set along West Broadway.
“A goal of 150 trees planted is what we are hoping for and we need volunteers if we are going to reach that goal,” says Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5). “The city has an ambitious plan to replace our tree canopy after years of neglect and destruction by the forces of nature and disease.”
The Brightside Community – Wide Planting Day is set for Saturday, November 7th from 9:00am to 2:00pm. Volunteers should meet at the Shawnee Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library, 3912 West Broadway
Brightside will assist the volunteers in planting 150 trees along West Broadway from 20th Street to 44th Street.
“If you want to be a part of helping beautify this area as part of our sustainability efforts and improving the environment I would encourage you to come and join the volunteers, “says Hamilton. “ We are only asking people to plant one tree per volunteer. If enough people show up to help we can have the planting done in no time.”
