Celebrate National Arbor Day
April 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amThe cost of this program is included in the cost of admission
Arbor Day was started by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska as a way to get more trees planted in the Midwest prairie states. At Edison Ford, trees are planted throughout the year; although, on Arbor Day, we celebrate with students from local schools, garden clubs and other community organizations. In celebration of Arbor Day, students from Edison Park Creative and Expressive Arts School will help continue the tradition of planting a tree. This year, two Poitea carnalis, or Caribwood trees will be planted at the entrance gate to the Ford home.
