We celebrated Arbor Day on April 29, 2023 with a free guided walk along the Feeder Canal, at Overlook Park at the Feeder Dam. A small group learned how to identify local trees by their buds, branch structure and bark, and about the Emerald Ash Borer and what to do about it! The 1.5 hour guided walk was conducted by Jeff Speich, a certified ISA Arborist, and a good time was had by all attendees!
