"Walk through History with the Trees on Annapolis Street"
Saturday, April 27, 10:30-noon.
Sponsored by the West Annapolis Heritage Partnership, the tour will start at Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, 103 Annapolis St., in West Annapolis. The guide, Ginny Vroblesky, is the author of "Listening to Our Trees," and will talk about how the trees help to tell the story of the transition of West Annapolis from an 18th and 19th century farm to Annapolis's first railroad suburb and landscape design of Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. There is no fee, but donations to the West Annapolis Heritage Partnership are welcomed ($10 per adult; $5 per child, is appreciated). Middle and high school students studying history and biology are encouraged to take the tour. For more information WAHeritagePartnership@gmail.com or call 443-995-8978. Middle and high school students are encouraged
Museum quality reproductions of the 1890 Map of the Town of West Annapolis and the booklet, Listening to Our Trees: A Walking Tour of West Annapolis and Wardour are for sale to benefit the West Annapolis Heritage Partnership at 103 Annapolis St.

No leaf vacuuming by public works crews in Annapolis. Leaves will no longer be vacuumed by Public Works crews in Annapolis so compost/mulch them (best) or put them curbside in paper/plastic lawn bags or containers marked “X” for Wednesday pickup

Protect Our Trees. English ivy can cause structural and health problems if it's allowed to climb tree trunks. Dense ivy can cause leaves and debris to pile up against the root collar, and traps moisture against the trunk and root flare. This causes stress and can lead to disease. Ivy vines on a tree contribute to the wind or ice load which can break limbs or even fell the tree. Trees are not equipped to hold hundreds or thousands of additional pounds of ivy. Clip ivy vines at the base of the tree to cut off nutrients to the vines. Leave the cut vines on the tree since pulling them down can harm the tree. They'll die and disappear over the next year. Poison ivy often hides in English ivy, so wear long clothing and gloves.
Fun challenge: We're looking for a possible replacement for the logo in the top left of this screen (which we ripped off from the Western Australia Cricket Association!)
Do we have, or can you create, a nice logo or photograph that typifies West Annapolis?
