The Lawrence Journal World ran a story this morning by Jennifer Smith announcing the “Historic Trees of Douglas County” project. The project is funded by a grant from the Natural and Cultural Heritage Grant Program of Douglas County. A group of Douglas County Master Gardeners, along with Smith, the County Horticulture agent wrote and submitted the proposal last fall, and received approval to do the program. Here is a link to the story in today’s LJ World. http://www.lawrence.com/news/2012/jan/22/garden-calendar-master-gardeners-seek-trees-histor/
