Join the Land Managers of the Lynden Sculpture Garden on a walk around the grounds to discover Lynden’s urban forest. On this walk we will discuss the various trees and shrubs that make up the forest, urban forest management techniques, and our exciting new tree inventory project which we are conducting with the assistance of a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Urban Forestry Grant. This tree inventory will result in a management plan to help care for our valuable urban forest far into the future.
