Please join us on Wednesday June 7 at 1 PM at the Overland Park Arboretum when Jim Earnest will give a one-hour power point presentation on Great Ornamental and Shade Trees for the Kansas City area. Many of these beautiful trees are planted at the Overland Park Arboretum. Jim is a retired cardiologist, retiring fifteen years ago and has since been studying and working with trees, planting trees around his farm and studying trees to see what makes them grow, reproduce, and add peace and tranquility to our lives. The Overland Park Arboretum is south of Overland Park at 8909 W. 179th Street, Overland Park, KS 66013. This is one-half mile west of Highway 69. We will have seating for fifty people so come early and get a seat. Reservations are not needed or taken. This presentation will be held inside in the visitors center. If you are not a member or volunteer of the arboretum there is a $3.00 entry fee to the gardens.
