Black Rock Riverside Alliance hosts free tree, seed giveaway

Volunteers passed out hundreds of flower seed packets and 200 native tree seedlings on a first-come, first-serve basis.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — In honor of National Garden for Wildlife Month in Buffalo and Erie County, several organizations teamed up to host a tree and seed giveaway this weekend.  

The event was held by the Black Rock Riverside Alliance (BRRAlliance) through its partnership with the National Wildlife Federation Trees for Wildlife program, the Niagara River Greenway, and the Paul & Helen Ellis Charitable Trust. 

Volunteers from the BRRAlliance were at Riverside Park on Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon for the giveaway. 

The free event was held in a drive-up format. Volunteers passed out hundreds of flower seed packets and 200 native tree seedlings on a first-come, first-serve basis. Each vehicle was limited to one tree seedling and a maximum of three seed packets.

To minimize congestion, vehicles were advised to enter the park on Tonawanda Street and exit onto Niagara Street.
