SYRACUSE — Over the past year and a half or so, the Syracuse Tree Board has been working with the St. Joseph River Basin Commission, ReLeaf Michigan, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Urban Forestry Commission on a grant that was received to study trees and storm water run-off in the St. Joseph River Basin.
The Syracuse Tree Board was one of six communities in the St. Joseph River Basin area that participated in this grant.
As part of the grant, the Syracuse Tree Board had two areas studied in the community. First, was overall tree health and second was a planting guide. These studies have been completed and the organizations that participated in the study are ready to make a public presentation about the results.
The Syracuse Tree Board, along with the other participating organizations or a representative of an organization, are invited to the public presentation of the grant’s findings.
The presentation will be at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20, at the Syracuse Community Center, 1013 N. Long Drive, Syracuse.
