San Antonio Parks and Recreation presents Jammin’ Jams, a free, drive thru fruit tree adoption event from 8 a.m. until Noon or while supplies last. Six hundred fruit trees will be available including apple, fig, lemon, lime, nectarine, orange, and pear. Quantities are limited and are first come, first serve. One tree available per car.

The Department’s new tree mascot, Parker, will make its debut at Jammin’ Jams. Parker is a Texas Red Oak, a native Texas tree, who will be on hand to greet and entertain visitors while helping adopt out fruit trees to San Antonio neighbors.

“While we’ve had to pivot on our service delivery throughout the year due to the pandemic, we’re excited to bring Jammin’ Jams to our neighbors in a new way. We’ve expanded locations and included additional dates to offer residents more opportunities to adopt a fruit tree this season,” said Homer Garcia III, Director of Parks and Recreation. All trees are provided by the Parks and Recreation Department through the Tree Canopy Preservation & Mitigation Fund. This is one of three drive thru fruit tree adoption events scheduled.
