Noanett has chosen the sassafras tree, Sassafras albidum, as the subject of our Centennial Tree Project. The Horticulture Chair has been sending annual reports and photographs of the club's progress to the liaison on the GCA's Horticulture Committee.
Workshops taking root cuttings of sassafras and learning about the butterflies and moths that use this species as a larval source as well as the long ethnobotanical history of sassafras have taken place.
