Birmingham Botanical Gardens Joins Reforestation Effort at George Ward Park

On Saturday, October 27, Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens staff members joined the Glen Iris Neighborhood Association and volunteers from Impact Alabama in an effort to replant George Ward Park. Over time, many of the trees in the park have vanished due to mowing. With the support of Little Garden Club and Red Mountain Garden Club, this five-year project continued on Saturday.

Executive Director, Fred Spicer, Director of Education, Henry Hughes, and Kaul Wildflower Garden curator John Manion recently made their annual trip to George Ward Park off Greensprings Avenue to plant trees.  Each year, The Gardens makes an effort to help plant, an effort that is being taken to another level this year as we are currently growing new trees to help replant areas affected by April’s tornado damage.
