Happy Arbor Day, Arkansas!
Arkansas’ State Tree, the Loblolly Pine, is a good example of Southern Hospitality. The species provides shelter to not only local fauna, but other trees as well. The Loblolly Pine can tolerate sea air. Underneath its protective branches, salt-sensitive hardwoods such as red maples can still find a home near the ocean.

To find out when your state celebrates Arbor Day, check out Arbor Day Dates Across America at ArborDay.org.

    re: Nalini Nadkarni – you SHOULD. just a few days ago I posted a link about her on facebook. Rap Music Brings Science to Urban Youth

    I then found out one of my fellow grad school colleagues had the pleasure of meeting her at a conference. I hear she’s an amazing lecturer/teacher, too. I bet she is. Anyone bold enough to experiment with cultural and music boundaries to reach under-served youth gets big props in my book.
