Summer Field Day
August 10 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Each year AMTOPP hosts a Summer Field Day at different facilities across the state. The focus of this event is to provide labor, material, and equipment to aid in beautifying the grounds of a State Veterans’ facility or another facility that may qualify. Summer Field Day is tailored after the National Association of Landscape Professionals “Day of Remembrance,” where labor, material, and equipment is provided to aid in beautifying Arlington National Cemetery, in Washington D.C.
This year’s venue will be in Columbia Falls. It has been a few years since AMTOPP has visited the site for the Summer Field Day and we are looking forward to getting back. Organizing this year’s event are AMTOPP Secretary/Treasurer, Dudley Marburger with the help of Ray Coffey, of Integrated Pest Management in Whitefish. So far the following things are on the list to be addressed: four trees removed, two trees (sugar maple) planted, main entrance trees deadwooded and fertilizer spread. More information will be coming later as the date approaches.
