Trees For Pollinators in African Cemetery No. 2

Date: June 22, 2023

Time: 6:00pm

Location: African Cemetery No. 2, 419 E 7th Street, Lexington, KY

Join us for a walk in the historic African Cemetery No. 2 that will focus on the critical role trees play in a thriving pollinator habitat.  We will highlight trees that provide for pollinators from early spring to late summer, the importance of a diverse tree canopy, the role of trees as keystone species, and more. Learn about how the canopy in African Cemetery No. 2 has grown - both in number of trees and number of tree species - as these once abandoned eight acres continue to be restored and improved upon, with tree planting as a primary focus. 

Learn more about the remarkable history of the cemetery here, and then join us for the walk on the 22nd to learn more about the many benefits that trees provide to pollinators. We'll have some door prizes for those who attend, and guarantee an informative and inspirational evening! 

This event will be lead by ISA-Certified Arborist and Trees Lexington! Board President Stacy Borden, African Cemetery No. 2 Chair Mark Coyne, and Fayette Co. Extension Assistant and Trees Lexington! Board Member Tyson Gregory.
