VIDEO: Protestors Plant Trees on Greensward

Posted By on Sat, Jan 16, 2016 at 1:14 PM

Dozens of protestors took to the Greensward at Overton Park for a second line to eulogize 27 trees that were removed by the zoo last week and to plant three trees to show they want parking on the Greensward to end.

The event was organized by Greensward advocacy group Get Off Our Lawn.

The Might Souls Brass Band led the protestors from Veterans Plaza to an area about 100 yards away where shallow indentations in the ground showed where the trees were removed.
