The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the Beaver Island State Park Memorial Tree Planting Project announced that the next tree ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17.
Dr. Donna Kester-Phillips, an avid park user, created the program with support from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation in 2014 with the goal of restocking trees lost at the park due to disease and recent harsh winters.
Interested participants can make a contribution to honor a friend or family member, a dedication for a special event or just to remember a special memory of the park. Park staff will determine what indigenous trees or shrubs will be planted in conjunction with the park tree management plan.
Interested participants can learn more by calling the park at 716-773-3271.
