2022 is the 150th Anniversary of Arbor Day! Although Nebraska City, NE is the official birthplace of Arbor Day, communities around the world now gather every year to celebrate trees and plant them for a green tomorrow.
FUN FACT: Did you know that trees are not only beautiful, but also help to manage stormwater runoff? Their leaf canopies hold water that then evaporates, their roots help water infiltrate into the ground and they help reduce erosion from falling rain. What great partners! Shorewood recently won the Tree City USA award for the number of trees planted and maintained. So take a walk and see Shorewood's most distinguished trees on this guided tour. Plant a tree or shrub to attract wildlife and provide shade. Take a walk in any of Shorewood's parks to enjoy the greenery, observe calming nature and pick up trash.
