The goal for 2016 for Norman Clayton and Sunridge Park has been met!! Thank you to all who donated!!
Greentree Adopt-a-Park Tree Program* 2016 through 2019
The Greentree Adopt-a-Part Tree Program achieved its goal of saving seven trees in Greentree parks by treating them for emerald ash borer disease. Treatments were funded by donations from Greentree residents to the Madison Parks Foundation accounts for three trees each in Norman Clayton and Sunridge Parks and by an anonymous donation for treatment of one tree in Greentree – Chapel Hill Park. The treatments lasts until 2019 when the second treatment phase is planned, with a third treatment phase planned for 2022. From now until mid-May 2019, the accounts for Norman Clayton and Sunridge Parks will remain open for donations toward 2019 EAB treatments for the trees in the two parks. This provides an opportunity for you to make a donation to support the 2019 EAB treatments early, rather than waiting for the relative short fund-raising period from mid-May to mid-July 2019. Donations: Donation by check can be made by mailing a check made out to Madison Parks Foundation for the total amount and a separate note which specifies the park or parks and the amount(s) to:
Madison Parks Foundation 1402 Wingra Creek Parkway Madison, WI 53715
