Greenscape of Jacksonville, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching Jacksonville through planting, protecting and promoting trees, invites the Jacksonville community to the second annual “Arbor Day Festival and Greenscape Tree Giveaway.” The family-focused fundraising event will take place March 24th, Jacksonville’s Official Arbor Day, at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds.
The Arbor Day Festival replaces Greenscape’s annual tree sale. Instead of selling trees, the organization plans to give away thousands trees to attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Activities will include children’s arts and crafts, a petting zoo, entertainment and educational talks on trees and the environment.
Tree species to be given away: Fringetree, Dahoon Holly, Red Maple, Riverbirch, Tulip Poplar, Redbud, Live Oak, Winged Elm.
