The tour will highlight the cherry tree legacy in Sunnyside, where 10 percent of the street trees are cherry trees! We will also note the biodiversity risk that is associated with having too many cherries (or any species) and give recommendations for alternative flowering species.

 

Refreshments will be provided by local businesses, including some delicious dried cherries from Cherry Country Farms!
