Today (April 29) is Arbor Day, a nationwide celebration that encourages people to take the simple action of planting trees. According to the Arbor Day history page, Arbor Day was founded in 1872 by Julius Sterling Morton. Morton grew up in Detroit and graduated from the University of Michigan. He actually grew up in Monroe, and you can read his story from Hometown History Tours (a very cool site btw!).
I was faced with a bind this morning when I became aware of the fact that two of my favorite photographers, Laura Dyszynski aka caterpillars and Meghan East (mlephotos), were the subject of the latest Exposure.Detroit opening tomorrow night (April 30) from 7-10 PM at the Woodbridge Pub in Detroit!

Thankfully, both women had photos of trees to choose from!
