Can't spend a dime?
Then spend some time... helping us plant and care for the trees.
GIFT to Participate in 2017 Mistletoe Market
GIFT, the Golden Isles Fund for Trees, celebrated is second birthday with a high tea at the History Center. Members and guests gathered to hear environmentalist Sally Krebs speak on the connection between wild and urban forests and human health. Krebs is a nationally respected authority on the subject.
President Sandy Turbidy outlined GIFT’s plans for protection of the Glynn County tree canopy and the need for the ongoing watering of trees newly planted after the damage of two recent hurricanes. To volunteer or become a member go to www.TreesGlynn.org.
GIFT is coming to the Glynn Visual Arts Mistletoe Market and bringing more than holiday cheer. The Golden Isles Fund for Trees is offering a gift that truly keeps on giving in the months and years ahead, ensuring that our Live Oaks and other trees are here for future generations.
For a minimum donation of $30, you can give a “Gift of GIFT” honoring a special person. A commemorative Live Oak ornament and acknowledgment card will be provided.
You may also just drop by and show off your artistic talent. For a two-dollar donation kids and adults alike can color and decorate a wooden leaf ornament to decorate your holiday tree.
Donations support the maintenance and replanting of our existing tree canopy as well as ongoing educational programs for children and adults to promote the benefits of healthy trees in our environment.
Recent surveys show that tourists are attracted to the island because of the beautiful Live Oaks and lush green space. GIFT is working to protect our coastal tree canopy.
