FREE Outdoor Exhibit – through January 3, 2016
A record number of live red cedar and manufactured trees have been decorated by students and teachers from Lee County and Charlotte County (new this year). The theme this year is “tropical
flowers” but many schools added other garden themes like birds and butterflies. Funds to help the teachers are provided by Edison Ford and the George M. Cox Trust. Thanks this year to Sandhill Nurseries which provided the gorgeous, huge red cedar trees. The 10th Annual Tree Trail Project has been headed by Trustee and Lee County Art Teacher, Karen Flanders, and the Lee County Art Educators. This year, we are taking a popular vote of Favorite Tree, the forms will be located at the Information Booth.
