• Arbor Day Planting Event

    Saturday April 29, 2017

    Location: Greenbelt

    Trees are a vital tool in stormwater runoff reduction, and are often overlooked
    in urban settings. The City of Owensboro as part of our Municipal Stormwater
    Permit are excited to be partnering with the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint
    Joseph to offer a tree sapling planting event. The City will be planting 350-400
    saplings just North of the Greenbelt and the future dog park. These saplings will
    be planted along the existing tree line along Horse Fork Creek, one of our major
    creeks that runs in Owensboro. Citizens will be able to come out, learn about the
    importance of trees, and plant saplings in this area. Additionally, any citizen
    volunteer will be given a free sapling to take home and plant. City grounds
    department and Engineering will be there throughout the event to help with the
    plantings.
