In June, the US Conference of Mayors awarded Mayor Heartwell as first place in the 2012 Mayor's Climate Protection Award, which is sponsored by Walmart. As part of his award, he gave the Friends of Grand Rapids parks $12,500 to plant trees throughout the City of Grand Rapids. Pairing with his initiatives towards youth, FGRP agreed to plant a portion of those trees to benefit our city's kids.
On Thursday, October 11th, meet FGRP and Mayor Heartwell at Cheseboro Park (951 Merritt SE) to plant a total of 10 trees. Cheseboro Park has recently lost ALL of it's trees as a result of Emerald Ash Borer infestations. The replacement of this tree canopy will help shield the playground and play-areas from the worst of summer's heat. This is just a small part that you can do to help improve both our City's playgrounds, and the Grand Rapids tree canopy.
