Arbor Day celebrations continue for Richmond Tree Stewards

April 14, 2012 7:17am

The Richmond Tree Stewards have been hard at work putting on programs every Saturday in April in honor of Arbor Day. Today’s “Tree Academy” is no longer taking any more registrants. But there’s still plenty for tree-lovers to experience on April 21st and 28th. On the 21st there will be a tree walk at 2:15 at the Carillon in Byrd Park as well as one in Bryan Park from 10 a.m. to noon. On the 28th, meet the trees of Capitol Square. Learn about the rain gardens and green street renovations that will reduce stormwater runoff and keep our waters clean. The walk will begin promptly at 10 a.m. at the Bell Tower.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
