On Sunday, January 19 at 10am, two “Hiroshima Survivor Trees” will be presented to Descanso from the Rotary Heiwa: Hiroshima Survivor Tree group. These persimmon trees grew from the seed of a plant that survived the first atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Japan in 1945. Descanso visitors and members are welcome at this event.

Hiroshima Survivor Tree Re-Planting is a project by Rotary Heiwa: Hiroshima Survivor Tree, a group of Rotarians in Japan, U.S. and Russia. Other survivor trees can be found at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta, the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center in Little Tokyo, Downtown LA, Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden in Pasadena, Verdugo Woodland Elementary School, Monte Vista Elementary School and Wilson Middle School in Glendale Unified School District.
