Saturday, April 20 | 8 a.m. - until gone
2013 marks the 25th year Traverse City Light & Power (TCL&P) has celebrated Earth Day with a
seedling giveaway. In 1988, TCL&P held its first annual seedling giveaway at the Bayside Power Plant,
giving seedlings away to customers and local community groups in support of the environment.
That tradition continues today.
This Earth Day, pick up a free eastern white pine (pinus strobus) seedling, courtesy of TCL&P.
The seedlings will be available beginning at 8 a.m. until they are gone on Saturday, April 20,
at the Sara Hardy Farmer’s Market (Union Street and Grandview Parkway) in downtown
Traverse City. Each seedling is potted and ready for planting.
As part of our efforts to support the community and the environment, TCL&P has given
away over 140,000 seedlings to customers, community members, school children,
and local organizations over the years.
