New arboretum at fairgrounds
STENBERG HONORED: An arboretum recognizing retired Dawson County Extension educator Dave Stenberg was recently dedicated at the Dawson County Fairgrounds in Lexington. Stenberg described the Stenberg Arboretum as a living laboratory of plant material that grows well in the area. Stenberg was the driving force behind development of the landscape project funded with grants from the Statewide Arboretum. Many people have visited the fairgrounds to decide which trees to grow in their backyards or attended tree care workshops to learn more about planting and pruning and how to prevent insect pests and disease problems.
