Tree Week Events 2023
October 9 Burnside Library 2-3pm
Join the Lake Cumberland Native Plants Swaps Group on a hike among native trees (and plants) at Pulaski County Park for Tree Week 2023 on Tuesday, October 10th.
We will meet at the Eagle Scout Trail Head at 10 am for a brief meet & greet and a small swap of plants/seeds before setting out on the trail at 10:45 am.
Participants and swap group members are encouraged to bring any extra native* seeds, plants or trees they may have to share & swap with others and swaps are always free!! (*all natives only, please)
👉Even if you have nothing to bring, there will be seeds available for you to take home! 👈
Come and enjoy the day with us to celebrate Tree Week, where we can learn from each other while identifying the diverse array of native trees and plants that call our area and state home along the park trails. This is an informal gathering and we can use resources, including each other to help ID plants and trees.
🥾 🥾 If planning to hike, everyone is encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing. Also, please bring items you may need while we enjoy the trail, including water, snacks, sun protection, bug spray, your phone or camera to take pictures or any other necessary items you may need. Participants are welcome to come to the meet and greet/swap even if they are unable to join for the hike.
