FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Officials plan for volunteers to plant more than 2,000 trees in Frankfort this weekend.
A statement says Kentucky State University will host the ReForest Frankfort event on Saturday at Old Young Hall. Hundreds of volunteers are expected to attend. Along with planting trees, those who attend can participate in a 4K run and everyone will receive tree saplings to take home.
Officials say the event will celebrate Arbor Day and educate the community about the benefits of trees and protecting natural resources.
