Free trees being given away to Bolivar residents
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It's been over four years since Hurricane Ike hit, but the community of Bolivar is still working to replant trees wiped away by the hurricane.
The conservation group Houston Audubon is giving away 1,400 trees for free on Saturday. They first began giving away trees soon after Hurricane Ike leveled the Texas coast in 2008.
The trees will be free for residents to take home, as long as they can show proof of Bolivar residency which could be a driver's license or utility bill.
The event is February 2 from 9am - 11:30am. Follow the signs from SH124th and 7th in High Island to the Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary (Old Mexico Road Entrance).
