In April 1995, Oklahoma City was the site of one of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil. A bomb that killed 168 people and injured more than 680, spread over 16 city blocks. An 80-year-old American Elm adjacent to the site, survived the blast and has become part of the Oklahoma City National Memorial.
Mark Bays, urban forestry coordinator, Oklahoma Forestry Service, will present the story of the “Survivor Tree,” and the healing of a community on Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. in Ritz Auditorium in Old Main on The University of Findlay campus. Bays is a graduate of Oklahoma State University in forest management and has been with the Oklahoma Forestry Service for 18 years. He has been directly involved with the Oklahoma City National Memorial Foundation since 1996.
The Findlay Shade Tree Commission and Findlay Green Campus Initiative (FGCI) are sponsoring Bays’ presentation. It is free of charge and open to the public.
