Kent Conservation District is taking part in the “Tree for Every Delawarean Initiative”. This program’s goal is to plant at least one tree for every Delawarean. This effort of building healthy and resilient forests is crucial in the effort to reduce the effects of climate change on the State of Delaware.
The Tree for Every Delawarean Initiative is a partnership that includes the Urban and Community Forest (UFC) programs in the Department of Agriculture’s Delaware Forest Service, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy and other stakeholders. It offers grants to private landowners, homeowner’s associations, non-governmental organizations, schools, and more to plant trees.
Delaware native tree species will be available to pick up October 26 and 27th at the Kent Conservation District office between the hours of 8 am to 4:30 pm . Saturday, October 28th the public can stop by the office from 9 am to 12 pm.
