In an effort led by Everglades City Councilman Tony Pernas and Naples Botanical Gardens, Everglades City has received a second grant from the Community Foundation of Collier providing beautiful (and quite large!) new trees in the median, thanks to Councilman Tony Pernas & Naples Botanical Gardens.
Earlier this year, the first round of trees was planted along Broadway and down the first few blocks of Copeland Avenue starting at the City circle. This second round of plantings runs down Copeland Avenue all the way to Camellia Street.
Just like the last time, a crew from Naples Botanical Gardens was assisted by numerous local volunteers over the two-day planting period.
The trees planted include coconut palms, royal palms, Hong Kong orchids, and Yellow tabebuia.
Many thanks to everyone who made this possible. We look forward to watching new trees in the median, bloom, grow, and prosper!
