The Illinois Forestry Association invites you to attend a program entitled "Think Like A Tree" given by host Guy Sternberg at the Starhill Forest Arboretum, Petersburg, Illinois on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 10 am, followed by a tour of the grounds.  Guy is an arborist, tree consultant, lecturer and author of the book "Native Trees for North American Landscapes".  Guy and his wife Edie have owned the Arboretum since 1976.  Starhill is noted for its living collection of North American oak species.  Attendance will be limited to the first 30 individuals who preregister on the website, so make your plans and preregister. 

No fee is required, but we would like to ask you to donate 2-3 hours of work at the arboretum immediately following the program (Pulling weeds around trees, spreading mulch, or picking up sticks on trails).  An alternative could be to make a modest donation to Starhill or come out for a their work day on April 14th.  For more details, you can visit the website at or call Carol Bryant at 618/444-3864.
