Planting for the Future May 9 – Celebrating 150 years with 150 Trees!

Planting for the future May 9!

As part of Lee’s Little boy plantingSummit’s 150th birthday, Parks and Recreation has teamed up with the Truly 150 Committee and Thunderbird District Boy Scouts to plant 150 trees in Lee’s Summit!   The event will take place in various parks throughout Lee’s Summit on Saturday, May 9 at 9 a.m.

We will be planting 25 trees in each of the following parks: Deer Valley, Legacy Park Trail, Arborwalk Park, Osage Trails, Eagle Creek and McKee Trail.  A map of the tree locations will be placed in the time capsule for the dedication on “Founders Day” set for October 18.   Come be a part of our history by helping plant for the future!  Click here to sign-up:

We hope to see these trees flourish over the next 50 years!  More information can be found at
