On Friday, April 29 (Arbor Day) Bethlehem Girl Scout Troop #1209, under the guidance of leader Veronica Roddy, planted 3 native trees- a swamp white oak (Quercus bicolor), a serviceberry (Amelanchier laevis) and a white birch (Betula papyrifera) at MHLC’s Van Dyke Preserve.
The serviceberry was planted In Memoriam of Carla Bailey, the daughter-in-law of David and Sandra Geisinger. We would like to thank Guernsey’s Schoharie Nurseries located in Schoharie NY for their generous donation.
After planting the trees, the group joined MHLC Stewardship Director Connie Tedesco for a wildflower walk on the preserve.
Thank you to Girl Scout troop #1209, David and Sandra Geisinger and all of our volunteers for contributing to make Arbor Day a fun and meaningful event!
