It’s not exactly Christmas, or the 4th of July.
But Arbor Day is tomorrow. And Westport won’t let the holiday pass unnoticed.
From 2-5 p.m. (Friday, April 29), the Westport Tree Board will (wo)man a table at the new (and very beautiful) Lillian Wadsworth Arboretum (corner of Stonybrook Road and Woodside Avenue). Tree warden Bruce Lindsay will hand out seedlings: 200 flowering dogwood, 100 Norway spruce and 100 river birch. Planting instructions are included.
It’s first-come, first-serve. But don’t worry about waiting in line. There’s plenty of shade.
(Thanks to Eversource Energy, for making Friday’s seedling giveaway possible.)
