On April 23, the City of Noblesville held its fourth annual Earth Day ArborFest celebration at Forest Park. Features of the event included a walkable watershed map, children’s educational and environmental activities and a free tree giveaway. At 11 a.m., Boy Scout Nick Svendsen, with Mayor John Ditslear, commemorated the day with a Tree of Hope Dedication Ceremony, celebrating Indiana’s Bicentennial. The event was a result of the work of Svendsen’s Eagle Scout project. In total, Svendsen organized the planting of 10 Trees of Hope across Hamilton Co. The trees serve as a living commitment to environmental sustainability, paying tribute to Indiana’s establishment of the state parks system 100 years ago, which then was a part of the state’s centennial celebration.
