This past Second Saturdays event the Ameal Moore Nature Center was all about trees as we celebrated Arbor Day. We know we were early (Arbor day is Friday April 28th this year) but there’s really never a bad time to celebrate and learn about trees!
Trees have some very important jobs- including producing oxygen! But did you know that trees do more than that? Trees provide shade, filter air, lower surrounding temperatures, keep water evaporation rates down, provide habitat for hundreds of animals, raise property value, and are good for mental health (among many, many other things!).
This event visitors were invited to learn all about trees and paint reusable canvas bags. If you missed this Second Saturdays event, don’t worry! There’s always another one right around the corner! Visit our events page for more information on upcoming events!
