A portion of the $2.5 million project includes a mixture of trees and walkways for the area between the dairy barn and the main library building. Along with planting new trees, the project will also include new landscaping and will renovate the irrigation system, lighting and walkways. Planting is expected wrap-up by the middle of March.
