The Arboretum has been nominated for SSNHA’s “People’s Choice” Site of the Year – hurry, vote today!! 

Each year, SSNHA celebrates the best in heritage development by presenting Golden Silo Awards to individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate outstanding excellence in preserving and telling stories of American agriculture.  For the second year in a row, SSNHA will let the public chose who they think should be named Site of the Year.  Voting will be open online at www.silosandsmokestacks.org  from March 8-14, with the winner announced during the annual Golden Silo Awards ceremony on April 7 in Waterloo.

Why should you vote for The Arboretum?  Because The Arboretum is the best choice, of course!  And this is an excellent opportunity to market our beautiful gardens to visitors all across Iowa and the Midwest.

**You can vote online by going to www.silosandsmokestacks.org and clicking on “Cast your vote” at the top of the page.  Another page will open where you will have the opportunity to vote for one of seven sites.  The Arboretum is listed first (with a photo of spring daffodils).  You will be asked to fill in your name and email address at the bottom of the page, but this is only used for verification purposes (you will not receive any junk email).

Help us win!!  Please send this link to your family and friends!  All votes must be submitted by March 14th.
