Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our January 2022 newsletter, we featured an article written by Michelle Leonard-Mularz, Environmental Horticulture Agent.  Arbor Day and the Power of Trees.Picture1

"Planting trees can be YOUR superpower in 2022! Create beauty, save money, and help build a better planet simply by planting trees. And why not start this Arbor Day?

Arbor Day, which is traditionally celebrated on the last Friday in April, was founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872. Morton was a Nebraska newspaper editor who had a deep love for trees and strongly advocated for more tree plantings. In 1858 he was appointed Secretary of the Nebraska Territory and later as the United States Secretary of Agriculture by President Cleveland in 1893."
