Park Foundation Participates in TreeFest/TRECYCLE
“The City of Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts annual TreeFest takes place again this year at Pondview Park, Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m.-noon. The annual event is focused on the importance of our local environment and to build advocacy for our community’s urban canopy. The event provides a great opportunity to educate participants on trees, but also a chance to learn from professionals on how to plant and maintain the trees they are planting. This year’s event will be in partnership with another local event, TRECYCLE. TRECYCLE is a 13 mile bike ride touring through seven Kettering parks, including Pondview Park and was created to not only plant trees in combination with a bike ride, but to build advocacy for our environment. We welcome support from others to contribute financially which will defray the cost of trees planted the day of the event. You can click here to donate. Please mark your donation as Unrestricted-General and indicate in the additional comment section that you are donating to TRECYCLE 19.
