Spring in the Arb...
With the first official day of spring (March 20) behind us, soon new plant
life will be in bloom, including in Linnaeus Arboretum. The 55-acre
arboretum was first planted in 1973 with several thousand seedlings from
the Soil Conservation Service. The arboretum has trees indigenous to the
state of Minnesota and was designed to resemble the state's 3 major natural
ecosystems. The southern tier of the arboretum is planted with native
prairie grasses and wildflowers, the central tier supports several collections
of deciduous trees, and the northern tier contains the conifer forest.
The arboretum also has several miles of walking paths and will soon dedicate
a new wetlands preserve.
