City of Stuart adopts Gumbo Limbo

Posted By Meg Whitmer, Saturday, July 25, 2009
On May 20, 2009 the City of Stuart officially adopted one of the six native trees featured in the Treasure Coast Urban Reforestation Project. The  12' Gumbo Limbo specimen, donated by Botanics Wholesale of Palm City, was planted in City Hall Park overlooking the St. Lucie River. 
Pictured are Meg Whitmer (left), project coordinator for The Reclamation Project - Treasure Coast and Stuart City Commissioner Carol Waxler (right). The Gumbo Limbo is a perfect addition to the native coastal habitat in City Hall Park, framed by a canopy of native Live Oaks and Sabal Palms overlooking the St. Lucie River. The location was selected to provide additional shade for the picnic tables.
The City of Stuart is a proud participant and supporter of The Reclamation Project.
