Celebrating May Day in the Ladd Arboretum

Planting saplings in the arboretum

Dozens of community members came to the Ladd Arboretum on May 1st to help plant saplings of native trees and shrubs—a gift from the National Wildlife Federation’s Trees for Wildlife program. Girls Scouts and TreeKeepers were among those who worked alongside city staff to plant dozens of juneberry, spicebush, and elderberry saplings along the banks of the North Shore Channel.
