KRB plants trees as part of beautification project

Keep the Rez Beautiful volunteers planted 26 trees today as part of a community greening project near Turtle Creek at the Reservoir. Today’s beautification day was part of a larger initiative to create a wildlife sanctuary on this vacant four-acre site. Trees and supplies were funded by a $2,000 grant from Keep America Beautiful.

More than 20 volunteers gathered to plant the trees, including KRB board members, Pearl River Valley Water Supply District staff and board members and St. Mark’s United Methodist Church congregation members. A special thanks to all who were able to help!

A special thanks to our volunteer landscape architect, Dave Thompson, who spearheaded the project! Also, additional gratitude to PRVWSD for providing tools and assistance and to St. Mark’s for sending their volunteers to help with our cause! A final thanks to Tree Source Farms at Fannin for giving us a discount rate to purchase the trees for this project! The trees look great!

Enjoy some glimpses below from our event. For more photos, check us out on Facebook.
