Our foundation is committed to foster and support, through direct grants and other assistance, the arts in the Town of Highland. The term “the arts” is meant to be a broad-based inclusion of art in its many forms, including but not limited to, the following: painting, sculpture, music, theatre, writing, poetry, photography, dance, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and the culinary arts.

Approximately 138 Emerald Ash Boer diseased trees are located within Highland parks and along streets. Increased tree canopy can help mitigate the effects of storm events by reducing flow rates into sewer systems during peak flow periods and by promoting on-site infiltration and percolation. Trees are capable of improving water quality by reducing particle displacement leading to less sedimentation. Shade from trees can reduce energy cost for summer air conditioning and improve property values. Contribute for grants to be offered to the Town for removal and replacement of diseased trees.
