Reeves-Reed Arboretum, together with the City of Summit’s Shade Tree Advisory Committee, presents three powerful programs, in our returning series called Fall in Love With Trees.
In Part Two of the series, we take a cinematic view of the gentle giants of our world. Trees are the oldest living beings we come to know during our time on earth. Join us for a 40-minute, inspirational film from documentary filmmaker Jordan Manley, that follows a group of snow-seekers, scientists, and healers to the birch groves of Japan, the red cedars of British Columbia, and the bristlecones of Nevada, as they explore the ancient story of trees.
Plus…An Intro to Summit’s Tiny Forest! Following the film, Donna Goggin Patel, Chair of the Summit Environmental Commission, will introduce Summit’s own Tiny Forest, a multi-layered forest of native plants that is designed to become self-sustaining after two to three years and become a fully developed forest in 20 to 30 years. Learn how the Tiny Forest draws down carbon, supports biodiversity, and helps the watershed ecosystem.
Program is being offered onsite and virtually. Onsite space is limited and reservations are encouraged.
