One of the many ways we are aiming to enhance the health of the Olentangy Watershed is through campaigning for the planting of native trees! Our goal is to partner with the Olentangy Watershed community and have everyone planting and caring for trees. We hope to accomplish this by providing education, ensuring you live in the Olentangy Watershed, and offering free native trees and shrubs. To claim a FREE TREE, please go to the registration page by clicking HERE or by clicking “Grow with the FLOW” above. Registration is open through March 29th, 2019.
FLOW maintains an Urban Tree Nursery growing a variety of species for a free giveaway and planting within the Olentangy Watershed. Our next giveaway will be hosted March 30th, 2019.
