Tree Planting at Haworth Park

Those of us who love to read books - especially the paper kind - are very thankful for the trees that provide the paper.  Trees also give us shade, a place to climb and play, and protection and homes for animals and birds.  All this in addition to purifying the air and adding beauty to our lives!
The children's department supports the efforts of Green Bellevue, and is pleased to be involved in a special event scheduled for later this month.

Members of Green Bellevue and staff from the Nebraska Forest Service will be planting 250 new trees in Haworth Park on September 25th and 26th.  The event will begin both days with a 12:30PM presentation on how to plant trees.

Family Activities:  
Anyone who would like to help plant a tree or two is asked to bring a shovel, dirt rake, and work gloves.  There is also an opportunity for a family to adopt a tree!  Please respond to this post, or email me (alice.boeckman@bellevue.net) if you are interested in these events or have questions.
I will be at the park both days to hand out freebies and
other prizes to children who attend!

Book Display:
At the library you will find a special display of children's books about trees!  I hope you will stop by and check out a few for your family to enjoy!

Our book display features a few pictures of Haworth Park taken before 2011, during and following the flood of 2011, and at its reopening earlier this summer.
I hope to see you at Haworth Park on either September 25th or 26th at 12:30 PM!
