On Sunday, local volunteers met at York Park to mulch, water, weed and otherwise care for the newest members of Highland Park’s urban forest.
Thank you to volunteers from the community, Tree People and Franklin High School for spending your Sunday morning caring for our beloved street trees!
This was the second monthly tree care event hosted and organized by Councilmember Huizar’s office, Tree People and local tree expert Marcos Trinidad.
These monthly events target the 272 street trees planted in 2014 through a partnership between Councilmember Huizar’s Office, the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council and the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council. Last month, volunteers cared for trees in Eagle Rock. This month, volunteers tended to those trees planted in Highland Park, along York Blvd between Avenue 50 and Avenue 54.
Next month, we’ll be back in Eagle Rock! Learn more and RSVP here.
