“April is the cruelest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain.”

April may be cruel—it did snow on the 15th—but is also the busiest month for anyone who works in conservation education. Since 1970, April 22 has been celebrated as Earth Day. Arbor Day is even older—it became a legal holiday in Nebraska in 1885! Now, it is usually celebrated on the last Friday in April. This year Arbor Day is celebrated in Ohio on April 25. Not to mention that our Tree-Sale Pick-Up is April 11 and 12. Read More
