Thanks to University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener, Cindy Bielefeldt, for providing the following information about a family-friendly Freeport event coming up:
Saturday, April 30, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The walk starts at Don Opel Arboretum in Parking Lot D of Highland Community College. Address: 2998 W. Pearl City Rd., Freeport, IL 61032.
The University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners invite you to enjoy a new 68 item tree and shrub walk in celebration of Arbor Day at the Don Opel Regional Arboretum.
Master Gardeners will be on hand for guidance and to answer questions. Descriptive signs will be at each of the 68 trees. Family oriented activities–bring the children and share the beauty of the great outdoors.
This walk is fully documented by an engaging brochure and informative signs. The total walk is less than 1/2 a mile and can be conducted totally on sidewalks beginning and ending south of the greenhouse in Parking Lot D.
