Thanks to the generosity of a donation from Atmos Energy along with a number of individual donors, Treemendous Quanah 2022 will be our biggest event yet!
We need your help to plant trees on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 9:00 AM. We will meet on the east side of Historic Quanah City Park to start the tree planting event.
The donations received have allowed us to purchase a total of 18 trees in 30-, 15-, 10-, and 5-gallon containers. Our plan is to plant 14 of those trees at Quanah City Park, 4 at the Hardeman County Historical Museums, and 2 at the Goodlett Cemetery. In addition, as part of our partnership with the West Kessler Native Arbor Initiative, we will also receive a number of smaller trees that will be planted at the various locations and will also be available for free to the public in Quanah!
Please help us get all these trees planted on October 8th and bring along whatever equipment may assist in that process (post hole diggers, shovels, gloves, etc.).
Additionally, we will need volunteers to help keep these new trees watered for their first 1 ½ - 2 years. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to sign up to help water these new trees!
About Treemendous Quanah: In conjunction with the West Kessler Native Arbor Initiative (WKNAI), the E. Eugene Johnson Memorial Foundation initiated the Treemendous Quanah program in 2020. The WKNAI is a project of the West Kessler Neighborhood Associated that was created in consultation with and the mentorship of the academics at the University of North Texas (UNT) and the Lewisville Aquatic Ecosystem Research Facility (LAERF). Working with the WKNAI, the Foundation provides free native tree seedlings to Quanah public spaces. We rely upon the help of volunteers to plant trees through local restoration projects to enhance the beautification of Quanah.
