Volunteers plant trees for Arbor Day
JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County - Civic groups, churches and volunteers will come together at the Onslow Community Outreach Services Center for an Arbor Day Project on Friday.
The project is called Adopt an Island on Arbor Day. Arbor Day celebrates the environment by encouraging individuals and groups to plant and care for trees. The goal for the event is to plant 26 trees and 137 shrubs.
The Outreach is seeking groups and individuals to sponsor 20 parking lot islands. Sponsorships will buy top soil, trees and shrubs. Approximately 30 volunteers are needed. Fish dinners will be sold during the project to benefit the Onslow Soup Kitchen.
