About The Frank Wilson Park Tree Inventory

As part of the Martinsville Henry Community Nature Initiative our purpose is to create more opportunities for outdoor free time activities for the community. In collaboration with the Virginia Museum of Natural History we are conducting an ecological inventory of the Frank Wilson Park located in Martinsville, Virginia. It is our goal for this inventory to be a working nature and outdoor educational tool to involve community adults and children.

This inventory is also a great way student groups, scout troops, Master Naturalists, and Master Gardeners, to name a few, to earn volunteer service hours.

For any questions, comments, or ideas please email denny.casey@vmnh.virginia.gov.
