Mlissa Roulson hopes the Tree of Ideas, seen here during the July 20 Planting Party, will foster better communication among local community members. Visitors are encouraged to add a leaf to the tree with their wishes or ideas to improve Durango and the surrounding area. The Tree of Ideas is about citizen-powered development, public art and encouraging residents to participate and share their voice in a creative and innovative way, Roulson said. The tree will remain on display through Aug. 30. Learn more at www.facebook.com/pages/Tree-of-Ideas/257610017684841.
