Funds provided to city by the Urban and Community Forest grant program
As a result of $18,210 in funding awarded by the Urban and Community Forest grant program, the shoreline of Clear Lake will be getting greener. The money will be used to plant trees which will serve as natural enhancement to Australian Avenue, providing visual aesthetics while buffering the city’s drinking water supply.
The trees also benefit the community by showcasing the different tree species and demonstrating their importance to the environment. The planted trees will eventually grow to become part of the urban forest being developed along Clear Lake.
