Glen Park Gum Trees Girls Festival, July 10

Honor the Gum Tree Girls Who Saved Us from a
Freeway through Glen Canyon Park!

Gum Tree Girls Festival, Sunday July 10, 10:30 am – 3:30 pm in Glen Canyon Park

This free festival will tell the story of how Glen Canyon Park was saved from a freeway by Zoanne Theriault Nordstrom, Joan Seiwald, and Geri Arkush, as well as their predecessor, Minnie Straub Baxter. Enjoy special guests, history talk and video, nonprofit tables, children’s activities and a remembrance of those lost to COVID. Please see the flyer below for more information.
