Did you know…Wilmore has a Town Branch which weaves and twists throughout the community, sometimes surfacing for many yards, only to drop below surface under sidewalks and streets, eventually making its way to Jessamine Creek!
This year’s annual Arbor Day Celebration will be the start of a citizen driven project focusing on Town Branch to clean and restore it. On April 24th from 1-2:30 p.m. volunteers will gather at AdventureServe camp ground, 709 E. Main St, to plant native trees along Town Branch which fronts the property. In preparation for the plantings, volunteers from AdventureServe and local Boy Scouts have been removing the very invasive Japanese Honeysuckle bush, picking up trash, and digging planting holes.
Home schooled children and children from nearby Wilmore Elementary School will join in the celebration and planting with special games and activities. All interested citizens are invited to attend.
The event is sponsored by the Wilmore Community Development Board. For more information contact 858-9983 or visit www.wilmore.org.
