Doors will open from 9-11 a.m. Free trees will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis - while supplies last. Tree species that will be made available will be announced the week of October 15. Miami-Dade single-family or duplex homeowners are eligible to receive 2 FREE trees per year, even if they have adopted trees in past years. Residents can also exchange their old showerheads and standard light bulbs for high-efficiency showerheads and compact fluorescent light bulbs at the event.
