Grant from Palmieri Trust for Nature Trails

Currently trees and plants at Salter Grove have temporary labels; thanks to the Vivian J. Palmieri Charitable Trust grant, permanent labels will be placed along the upcoming nature trail.

A generous grant of $25,000 from the Vivian J. Palmieri Charitable Trust is expected to fund the entire cost of the nature trail project at Salter Grove. This will include permanent labels for plants and trails and a dedicated website. Any residual funds will go toward additional landscaping.

Vivian Jerry Palmieri was an avid gardener and nature lover. Following his death in 2014, the Vivian J. Palmieri Charitable Trust was established to promote rose plantings around Jamestown. Subsequently, the geographical and charitable scope of the Trust has broadened.

Beach rose was planted at the new playground in tribute to Jerry Palmieri’s special love of roses. FoSG is very grateful to the Palmieri Trust for enabling the nature trail project to proceed expeditiously.
