The dedication of two ginkgo peace trees – planted from seeds of trees that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 – will be held this Saturday, April 30th at 1:00 PM at Idlewild Cemetery (980 Tucker Road) in Hood River. Artist, activist, and Oregon PSR Advisory Board member Chisao Hata will speak at the ceremony, and we invite you to join us for the dedication ceremony.
The seedlings were made possible through the combined efforts of the Oregon Department of Forestry, Oregon Community Trees, and One Sunny Day Initiatives, founded by Hiroshima survivor and Oregon resident Dr. Hideko Tamura Snider (pictured here with peace tree seedlings). Nearly four dozen Hiroshima peace trees have been planted in 32 Oregon communities.
The event coordinator is Tyler Roth, Hood River arborist and Oregon Community Trees member.
