Ever Green:
Coming Together to Care for Nature at Fort Atkinson's Historic Evergreen Cemetery

EverGreen June 22

In July of last year, nearly 70 trees in Fort Atkinson's Evergreen Cemetery were damaged due to strong straight-line winds. While much progress has been made, cemetery staff are still in need of further assistance to help restore this beautiful local landmark.

FACT has teamed up with the Fort Atkinson Club to create the upcoming benefit event Ever Green: Coming together to care for nature at Fort Atkinson’s historic Evergreen Cemetery. The Saturday, June 22 event will help raise funds and awareness to support tree stewardship at the cemetery, and will feature live performances, workshops, a plant sale, and an ice cream sundae bar.

12:00 pm - Ever Green Introduction by Bradford Wilcox

1:00 pm - FACT Summer Singers Concert

2:00 pm - "Myths about Tree Planting" by Carl Whitcomb
