Sponsored by Keep Bulloch Beautiful and the Georgia Southern Botanical Garden, the 2010 Arbor Day observance drew several hundred people to the Willie McTell Trail where they enjoyed painting like Emory above, making handprints, free food and music. Also, information about the importance of trees and recycling was made available and the Georgia Forestry Commission gave away 250 free seedlings.
