Tina Dolen, Executive Director of Newport Tree Society joined me on The Open Forum on WADK 1540 AM on Friday to discuss Newport Tree Society, Newport Arboretum and the Newport Open Space Partnership.

The final community meeting for the Newport Open Space Partnership will take place on Monday, June 6th at Pell Elementary School and will focus on creating a lasting vision for the future and consider how to put the plan into action.

You will have an opportunity to preview and provide input on the content that will be included in the Tree, Park, and Open Space Master Plan. We need your help to make sure it’s pointing in the right direction.
