We appreciate that the Walton Family and Peel Compton Foundations continue to support Eureka Springs Parks and Recreation and the City of Eureka Springs Tree City USA urban forestry efforts by providing 200 trees to give away to Eureka Springs residents!
The selection of trees and shrubs at this giveaway will include:
40 – Downy Serviceberry
40 – American Beautyberry
40 – Wild/Smooth Hydrangea
40 – Shrubby St. Johnswort
40 – Nannyberry Viburnum
As Edwin Way Teale said, “… autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together” so we decided to make this tree giveaway a locals gathering with cider and sweets along with music by Don Matt and Scott Thompson. Don and Scott have been singing together for 40 years creating original music comprised of harmonies and melodic affirmations. Scott brings new creativity and invention to this music with the addition of a Rav Vast drum, ukulele melodies and original tunes. Old tunes are enhanced, and new songs are uplifted by his additions.
As always, we appreciate your donations to help with upkeep and improvements to our parks and springs and to put towards future events. We look forward to gathering with you!
