My little brother, Ted, proposed to his girlfriend of 5 years, Nicole, at Arbor Day Farm last week. It was a wonderful evening! Everything was made even more special by the trifecta of my involvement in the event: (1) I am Ted’s big sister, (2) I served as Ted’s top-secret proposal planning assistant, and (3) I am an employee of the Arbor Day Foundation. I’m thrilled to have the chance to share the story with the readers of this blog.
How do you plant 1,500 cottonwoods? One tree at a time.
A crew of employees from the Arbor Day Foundation and The Nature Conservancy gathered this week to bring cottonwoods back to a section of land near the Missouri River bank, just north of Nebraska City, Nebraska. The restoration project
is a collaborative effort of the two organizations, along with the U.S. Forest Service and the Nebraska Forest Service, designed to bring life and sustainability back to the riverbank.
