Superstars of the High Plains Arboretum
July 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Join Jessica Friis on a walk through the High Plains Arboretum highlighting the “superstars”, the trees and shrubs that have thrived in Cheyenne’s climate for decades with very minimal care. You will gain an appreciation for these tough plants and perhaps some inspiration for what you can grow at home!
