Missouri City citizens encouraged to join “Go Green” tree planting event Feb. 22
On Saturday, Feb. 22, from 10 a.m. to noon, Missouri City is inviting citizens to “Go Green” this winter at a special tree planting event alongside the Oyster Creek Trail. Missouri City will once again continue its dedication to beautifying the “Show Me City” at the tree planting event sponsored by Missouri City Green and the Missouri City Forestry Department.
Residents interested in planting trees along Oyster Creek Trail will meet at the trail head next to the YMCA football field parking lot at 4433 Cartwright Rd. Residents of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in the free event.
No tree planting experience is required. Tools, training and refreshments will be provided. Participants are asked to wear close-toed shoes and gloves.
Ongoing Missouri City Forestry projects include the Edible Arbor Trail, a tasty trail featuring several groves of hardy trees and shrubs that produce edible fruits and nuts along Missouri City’s Oyster Creek Trail, and the Missouri City Tree Challenge, a program in which the Nichols Family of Quail Valley promises to match their neighbor’s tree donations for up to 50 trees at Missouri City Parks.
