Avondale Tree Walk Sat., April 23 10-12 Noon

From Nancy Martin
Third Annual Avondale Tree Walk Takes Place April 23

WHAT: 3rd Annual Avondale Tree Walk
WHO: Presented by the Avondale Estates Garden Club
WHEN: 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, April 23, rain or shine
WHERE: Lake Avondale near the gazebo, Lakeshore Dr.
COST: Free and open to the public

The Avondale Estates Garden Club presents the 3rd Annual Avondale Tree Walk, a conservation project, from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 23. The event is free, and all members of the public, including children and families, are invited. The walk takes place rain or shine.

The registration area is in front of the gazebo, which is just steps away from our "Tree Huggers in Training" talks for children. Other tree talks for adults are also close by. The tree walk will begin after the talks. Arborists and landscape architects will lead six different routes in Avondale Estates. One of those is a walk around Lake Avondale for those who prefer or require a short walk.

Children who participate will get a picture book from Arborguard Tree Specialists. If Avondale Elementary and the Museum School have at least five students from their school attend the walk, they will earn a book about trees by distinguished authors Gail Gibbons and Patricia Lauber for their school library.
All who go on a tree walk will receive a booklet,“75 Native Trees of Georgia,” from the Georgia Forestry Commission.
There will also be an opportunity to consult a panel of experts at the “Ask the Arborist Table” about any concerns homeowners have with trees in their landscapes

The guides at this year’s tree walk will emphasize six major roles that trees play in our environment:
• Trees make oxygen
• Trees save you money (lowering your heating costs)
• Trees keep your drinking water clean
• Trees make useful things for you
• Trees keep streets safe
• Trees Make City Life fun

Special thanks to City of Avondale Estates, the Avondale Estates Tree Board, the Avon Garden Club
and Arborguard Tree Specialists for their contributions to the 2016 Avondale Tree Walk.
