With spring almost upon us, join the Chicago Regions Tree Initiative’s Trinity Pierce on a short walk through a garden at the Morton Arboretum to learn about opportunities for enhancing the biodiversity and resilience of your native gardens by planting understory trees and shrubs. After the walk, we will go inside to learn more about the Chicago Region Tree Initiative’s programs that help residents plant and care for trees as well as opportunities to get involved. Light snacks will be provided. Event is free with registration. Space is limited.
