Arbor Day Eco Crawl
Our inaugural Arbor Day Eco Crawl was a great success! This was a free, family friendly event that took place on January 17, 2020. Businesses in Downtown New Port Richey had eco-friendly giveaways, such as native Blanket Flowers, reuseable straws, totes and bamboo silverware. We also handed out one free tree per household - one gallon Dwarf Simpson's Stopper and Walters Viburnum "Withlacoochee".
Trees play such an important role. They remove CO2 and pollutants therefore reducing the “heat island effect”. They also preserve soil by decreasing storm water run-off, and provide shade and shelter for many animals. We will have an arborist and staff from Florida Forest Service available to answer any tree questions you may have - including what type of trees should be planted in your yard.
We are planning on doing the event again on January 15, 2021. Please contact us if you would like to be a location or sponsor.
Thanks to our participating locations: Ordinance One, Pete's Grand Central, Wright's Natural Market, and Cotee River Brewing.
