Celebrate Great Falls Foundation, in coordination with the Great Falls Garden Club, is launching a major project to beautify a section of the Village. They will be planting 14 beautiful native trees along both sides of Walker Rd, from Georgetown Pike south to the edge of the commercial district. This area had "bump-outs" installed a few years ago to improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow. They will be native trees - such as Sourwood, American Plum, Fringe-Tree, Serviceberry, and American Hornbeam. These trees have been pre-approved by VDOT, as well as by County arborists for beauty and tolerance to harsh roadside conditions.
They estimate project costs - including trees, planting and first year care - at $20,000. GFCA recently approved a $1,500 grant to assist.
If you would like to support this project with a tax-deductible contribution, please use the attached form, which can be mailed or emailed, or visit the Celebrate Great Falls Foundation website. Donations should be made out to CGFF.
