When J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day back in 1872, his idea was simple- set aside a special day for tree planting. And today, that idea is more important than ever. Join us as we plant trees at Stoney Run. Please bring a shovel and work gloves. We will be meeting at the warming shelter on the north side of the main parking lot.
