Haskell Lab Arboretum earns award for excellence
CONCORD — Each year the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum holds a ceremony celebrating Nebraskans dedicated to the planting, landscaping, and over all education of natural resources across the state.
With nearly 100 affiliated sites in the NSA, it was with great honor the Northeast Arboretum at the Haskell Agriculture Lab, outside of Concord, learned they would be receiving the Affiliated Excellence Award for 2018.
Steve Rasmussen, Nebraska Forest Service District Forester, current curator for the Haskell Agriculture Lab’s arboretum, along with a few members of the Northeast Arboretum were present to receive the award Dec. 7 in Lincoln.
“This is a great way for the arboretum to be recognized for the arboretum programming that has been at the Haskell Agriculture Lab throughout the years,” said Rasmussen.
