Today is Arbor Day! It’s a national holiday that recognizes the importance of trees. The most common way people celebrate Arbor Day is to get together in groups to plant trees, but that isn’t the only way you can show love for Mother Nature. This year, give these nature-inspired activities a try:
- Start a kitchen herb garden.
- Take a nature walk or hike in a local park.
- Visit a botanical garden or Hazeltine Nurseries Garden Center.
- Plant trees, shrubs, and flowers that are native to your area. Doing this restores the natural habitat and provides optimal homes and food for local birds and wildlife.
