Cake and Catalpas

We celebrated Riverside’s Arboretum, Arbor Day and a birthday on Friday afternoon, April 27th in Guthrie Park.

Catalpas and Cake Tour was a joint venture with the Village Forester, Michael Collins, Ames School, and the Landscape Advisory Committee.

Docents provided information about the several Arboretum trees and how they are valuable to the village and individual home owners.

In celebration of Arbor Day, Ames students planted a bitternut hickory tree on the eastern side of Guthrie Park.

Our educational and fun day was topped off with cake in honor of Fredrick Law Olmsted’s 196th birthday.
