Edgehill Celebrates Arbor Day
Arbor Day, much like Earth Day, is a celebration of nature. But did you know that Arbor Day isn’t celebrated on the same date everywhere in the U.S.? According to the Farmer’s Almanac, while most states celebrate at the end of April, states, such as Hawaii, celebrate the occasion closer to the local planting time – in late November. Alaskans celebrate in mid-May.
This year at Edgehill, we asked two of our resident botanical experts to help us celebrate Arbor Day by identifying some of the many plants, shrubs and trees found throughout our beautiful community. From andromeda to viburnum, the spring brought gorgeous greenery and beautiful blossoms for all to enjoy. So we challenge you to walk around our campus, enjoy the weather and see if you can spot these gifts from nature while you do!
