Trees at Glenmere Tour: June 17


The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission invites the public to a tree tour of Glenmere Park on Monday, June 17th at 6:30 p.m.  City Forestry Manager Shiloh Hatcher will lead the tour. 

The Front Range of Colorado experienced another hard freeze this spring, and on this tour Shiloh will identify what trees have fared better than others since that event. He will also discuss the coming threat of the Emerald Ash Borer and provide updated information on what the attendees can do to be prepared. The tour will meet at 6:30 p.m. at the playground on the west end of Glenmere Park.  No reservations are required, but participants should wear walking shoes and bring insect repellent.

The walking tours provide citizens with a chance to hear about and see interesting sites with historical, cultural and architectural significance to Greeley.  The 2019 walking tours will be held in various locations around town.  The remainder of the tour schedule for 2019 is as follows:
