Bring your Green Thumbs to the Spring Campout May 5-8

Great News! We just confirmed one of our activities for the Spring Campout at Art Idso’s place in Absaraka the weekend of May 5 – 8. We will be treated to a private tour the 35-acre Dale E. Herman Research Arboretum just outside Absaraka! Dr. Todd West, NDSU Horticulture Undergraduate Program Coordinator and Associate Professor of Woody Plant Improvement confirmed our tour. We will learn more about woody landscape plants they are trialing in our climate conditions, plant diseases and small fruit research. This will be a great opportunity to pull off the winter mittens and get some much needed sunshine on those pale green thumbs! The tour is scheduled for Friday at 1:30 PM (weather permitting), with an alternate morning time frame, too. It’s early spring – just in case, bring your waterproof shoes or boots.  See you there!
