AMERICUS — The Lower Chattahoochee River Conservation District is excited to give away free pine trees in conjunction with the National Association of Conservation District’s Stewardship Week. Stewardship Week is held annually the last week of April and is one of the largest programs to promote soil and water conservation. Trees are an important component of conservation as they preserve topsoil for future abundant harvests, prevent erosion, and clean the water.
The event will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, May 3 at Happy Patch Produce, 302 E. Furlow St. Americus or until all trees are distributed. Trees will be given away on a first come, first serve basis. There will also be a kids’ activity available.
The Lower Chattahoochee River Conservation District promotes soil and water stewardship throughout local schools and to farmers and landowners in Clay, Lee, Quitman, Randolph, Stewart, Sumter, Schley, Terrell, Webster counties.
