LOUA will host another tree walk at 2pm today. This one will be guided by my husband, Pete Kovarik. Interested persons can meet at the LOUA kiosk on Weber across from the Indianola Informal K-8.
We had another successful day of planting trees yesterday, except that I didn’t take one picture! About 20 understory trees went into the Arboretum. We have about 80 more to put in the ground. I can’t wait to see what the Arboretum looks like next spring. Our red bud is starting to put out flowers and Pete says the dogwood has buds on it, too.
So if you would like to help out for Earth Day, we will be planting trees on April 21, 2013 at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, meeting at the kiosk. All needed materials for putting the trees into the ground will be provided.
Finally, LOUA will have its first BioBlitz2013 April 27, 2013 at 8:00 am – 8:00 pm Glen Echo Ravine Park. A BioBlitz is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. This is a kid-friendly event, where your kids can find all sorts of critters in the ravine and learn about what they are, what they eat, and why they are important. This is the kind of event that you can just drop in and stay for as long as you want. I’ll get a schedule up soon!
Hope to see you then!
