Nebraska Crop Tops and the Cass County 4-H Whiz Kids have been approved for an OPPD Tree Grant. We applied just a couple of weeks ago and received our notice in the mail yesterday. We have been invited to Lauritzen Gardens on 24 April to receive our grant money in an official ceremony. Nebraska Crop Tops will cover the remainder of funds required to complete the landscape project.
Mr. Landscape in Plattsmouth is the nursery we received our quote from for the project. They and the Whiz Kids will be planting three White Dogwoods and 3 Eastern Redbud trees this spring around the Weeping Water Lake and Campground.
The town completed a paved walking path along the river that runs through Weeping Water. These trees will offer safe haven for beneficial insects and birds and add a splash of color every spring for those residents who enjoy walking through town.
We hope all of our Shareholders have an opportunity to spend a bit of time walking around the lake, fishing, and enjoying nature.
