What better place is there to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment? We are recognizing the wonders of trees, by hosting a special event: Trees are Treemendous! sponsored by Shreiner Tree Care.
There will be something for everyone to enjoy so mark your calendar and plan to join us.

· Break out sessions with tree experts like Steve Shreiner about pruning and selecting the right tree for the right location
· Plant a tree in our reforestation area
· Showings of “The Old Oak Tree” - a short film about the ecosystem supported by one tree
· Create a leaf mobile
· A raffle with prizes valued at over $700
