As part of the 2021 Earth Day celebration and festivities, the Lackawanna County Commissioners planted trees on the Linden Street side of the Courthouse. The area will be dedicated in the Fall as COVID Memorial Plaza, honoring those who lost their lives to the virus.
The trees were donated by the Lackawanna County Conservation District and Corky’s Garden Path & Greenhouse. Several area environmental organizations participated in the event, offering information handouts and giveaways.
