Volunteers needed to plant over 1,800 seedlings on Saturday

Bring family and friends to participate in the countywide Legacy Forest initiative. This historical Summit tree-planting effort will impact the reforestation in our county and at the same time, support hospice and home health care patients in in the county. You can make a difference by volunteering for one or more tree- planting opportunities that will continue throughout the summer and fall.

All tree-planting volunteers are invited to the Legacy Forest Barbecue on Saturday.

The barbecue will take place at the Dillon Marina with live music from local artists.
