In honor of the Merryville’s self-proclaimed status as “The Eucalyptus Capital of Louisiana”, there will be a Forum to educate the citizens of Merryville and western Beauregard Parish about the various eucalyptus trees suitable for our location. Mr. Jeff McMillian, a Master Gardener, will describe appropriate eucalyptus trees and shrubs for landscaping. Mr. McMillian will also show slides of the best eucalyptus to plant in our area. There is no charge to attend.
Also, foresters will be on hand to answer questions about the commercial eucalyptus plantations surrounding the Merryville area.
