SECOND GENERATION MOON TREES
Take a moment to relax and reflect on the incredible achievements of humankind in the Moon Tree Garden. These second-generation trees are direct descendants of seeds that were taken to the Moon, and were supplied by Rosemary Roosa, Apollo 14 astronaut Stuart Roosa’s daughter and president and chief executive officer of the Moon Tree Foundation. The 12 trees represent the 12 crewed Apollo missions.
The garden surrounds a one-of-a-kind bronze statue of Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. The statue was created by sculptors George Lundeen, Mark Lundeen and Joey Bainer, and is on loan to the visitor complex from Rocket Mortgage® by Quicken Loans.
