The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has planned a full schedule of Arbor Day programs throughout the state on April 26-27. Guests are invited to join state park and visitor center staff for family-friendly outdoor programs that celebrate the many benefits of trees. Visitors can:
- Discover some of Michigan’s biggest trees growing in some of the state’s grandest parks
- Cut out a tree cookie
- Take home a seedling to plant in the backyard.
Anyone who’s ever wondered what kinds of bugs are bad for Michigan’s trees (and how they got here) or how to identify one kind of tree from another will get the chance to learn all of this and much more at various DNR programs around the state. Details are available on the DNR website.
