An Arbor Day planting will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Island Park in downtown Bryson City.
A wide variety of plants have been selected to add color to the island, with an emphasis on native species and wildlife-supporting plants. The extension service will offer a free seedling to anyone participating in the project.
This event is sponsored by the Swain County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Development Authority in conjunction with N.C. Cooperative Extension Service.
