The Friends of the Parks of Allen County and local volunteers will be planting trees around Fort Wayne this weekend.

Fort Wayne parks will undergo a bit of a makeover this weekend as Friends of the Parks teams up with Parks and Recreation in Fort Wayne and Allen County for the Great Tree Canopy Comeback Saturday morning.

Volunteers for the Great Tree Canopy Comeback are expected to help plant more than 250 trees around parks like Memorial, Lakeside, and Fox Island, while at the same time learning the appropriate methods for planting a tree.
