Krumme Arboretum Enters 20th Year in Falls City

 This year marks the 20th year since the first tree plantings at the Itha Krumme Memorial Arboretum in Falls City.  The arboretum, located near Stanton Lake, has grown to include approximately 70 species of plants native to Nebraska and surrounding states. 
 The Krumme Arboretum receives no taxpayer dollars, and as it enters its 20th year, a campaign is underway to raise funds to support the park.  Arboretum Curator Gerald Hopp says letters have been sent to previous donors.  He explains how one can help support the arboretum financially.  (play audio  :33)
