World Earth Day will be recognized this year on Saturday, April 22nd. To celebrate, the Board of County Commissioners and Keep Nassau Beautiful is hosting a Tree Planting Ceremony. Not only are trees nice to look at, but they also provide shade from the hot Florida sun and oxygen for us to breathe!
The Tree Planting Ceremony will take place on Friday, April 21st at 2 pm at the Sheriff’s Administration Office located at 77151 Citizens Circle in Yulee. This location was chosen to create a nice outdoor picnic/rest area for the Sheriff’s Office. It overlooks a pond and will create a nice shaded place for Sheriff’s employees to eat lunch, take a break, or just find a quiet spot for them to decompress during a stressful day.
The public is welcome to attend the event and celebrate Earth Day with us!
