Seed Contest Winner!

Posted on June 7, 2018

Nathan Han, age 9 and a third grader at the Waldorf School, won this year’s Arbor Day seed contest, organized by Montgomery Township’s Shade Tree Committee and held at the Mary Jacobs Library in April. Nathan correctly named the Eastern Hemlock tree as the source of the seeds. There were 337 hemlock seeds in the jar. Nathan’s guess of 340 was the closest. Larry Koplik, Chair of the Shade Tree Committee, presented Nathan with his prize, the book, “Trees, Leaves and Bark.”
