WAYNESVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Those who plant or donate a tree for Arbor Day at Caesar Creek State park will be able to camp for free.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 23 at Caesar Creek, residents can donate mature native tree saplings and help plant them in an effort to replace trees impacted by the emerald ash borer infestation, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
In return, participants can camp one night for free per each tree donated that is at least 5 feet in height. The promotion is limited to two free nights of camping per family, according to ODNR.
The department requests that people donate native tree species, such as red maple, red oak, burr oak, yellow poplar and beech. More native tree species can be found at ODNR’s website.
