Memorial tree planting set for Oct. 28


Mon, Oct 9th 2017 07:00 am
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the Beaver Island State Park Memorial Tree Planting Project have announced they will hold the next memorial tree planting ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 28.
Dr. Donna Kester-Phillips, an avid park user, created the program in 2014 with the goal of restocking trees that had been lost due to disease and recent harsh winters.
Those interested in honoring a loved one or marking a special occasion may purchase a tree, and park staff will determine the appropriate tree based on the park's tree management program. Prices vary based on tree size. Contact the park to purchase a tree before the Oct. 28 ceremony.
For more information about the tree-planting program, call Beaver Island State Park at 716-773-3271.
