Here’s a reminder from the the Parents Listserv at the CDC and also from the Fernbank Science Center website. Thanks to Paul & Laura Thompson for the heads up on this.
Fernbank Science Center is having their Arbor Day tree sale this Saturday, Feb. 26, 2011 from 9 a.m. until noon. This is a great opportunity to get some native trees and shrubs that are hard to find! Once established, native plants fare better than non-native. They also benefit wildlife and our ecosystem to a greater extent than most of the non-native plants do. The sale is located at the Fernbank Science Center at 156 Heaton Park Drive Atlanta GA 30307 (NOT at the Museum).
