Go Out on a Limb for Trees and climb | Environment
COLUMBUS, GA - How long has it been since you've climbed a tree? One Columbus group wants to help you relive that experience, no matter how young or old you are.
Trees Columbus is hosting Out on a Limb for Trees in downtown on Saturday, October 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The group will have certified tree-climbing instructors from Tree Climbing USA in Atlanta on hand to help you out. Anyone ages 8 and older can swing by and climb the huge laurel oak in the middle of the median on Broadway.
All experience levels are encouraged to come out, from beginner to expert!
Trees Columbus began the tree climb last October as a way to raise awareness of trees in a creative way.
Climbs are conducted with modern climbing equipment, safety ropes, a harness, and a helmet; the activity is a safe and fun activity for parents and children and even grandparents and grandchildren.
Once the tree planting season arrives, typically late November through February, Trees Columbus will be back to the planting part of their mission. The organization that promotes planting, preserving, and protecting trees hopes you will join them at future tree planting events but until then, hopes to see you in October for Out on a Limb for Trees.
