Join The Trail CATS for a tree planting session at a newly acquired ELAPP property.

This event marks our second installation of native plants in an area that connects various nature preserves in central to southwest Hillsborough County. These trees will provide forage for wildlife, create habitat, and form a natural buffer along the nearby housing development.
