    Does your fair community have an accredited Arboretum ?

    http://www.arbnet.org/arboretum-accreditation-program

    Description -
    The four levels of accreditation recognize arboreta at various degrees of development, capacity, and professionalism.
    Accredited arboreta are encouraged to seek and achieve higher professional standards and move up through the levels.
    Categorization also allows an assessment of which arboreta are capable of participating or collaborating in certain scientific, collections, or conservation activities.
    One of my fair city cemetery's was recognized as a Level 2 arboretum

    We have the Morton Arboretum in the western suburbs of Chicago (Lisle). Never actually been there for some reason. If it was easier to get to by bike I would. The botanical garden north of Chicago has a bike path that goes right into it and I can pick that up a few miles from home. They have free admission but charge for parking so I've never actually driven there, only gone there on bike rides.
