Enhancing natural aesthetics
The Warwick Wildlife and Conservation Commission hosted its annual Arbor Day Tree Planting ceremony on April 28 at Samuel Gorton Junior High School. A beautiful Keshon Cherry tree was provided from Yardworks. One of the purposes of the Warwick Wildlife and Conservation Commission, as listed in its bylaws, is to “enhance natural aesthetics and wildlife habitat” of the city. This marks the eighth year in a row the Commission has hosted a tree planting. Anne Holst, commission chair, seen here with faux gold shovel, expressed gratitude for all the work that went into this event. “I want to give thanks to several people, especially Gorton Junior High School Principal Jeffrey Taylor and Secretary Peggy Fitzsimmons, and my fellow Wildlife and Conservation Commissioner Henry Brown, who arranged the tree donation. Also assisting were Carl Bergden, Wayne Cabral, Joe Bucci and Susan Cabeceiras.
