In 1972, on the anniversary of the very first Arbor Day, an environmentally minded group of people created the Arbor Day Foundation to pursue the chlorophyll-laden mission of restoring habitats and natural ecosystems in the United States. The organization’s one million members help support conservation programs all over the country and spread awareness about the necessity of protecting our arboreal natural resources. The Tree City USA program replenishes urban forests in more than 3,400 towns and cities, helping produce cleaner air, lower energy costs, and storm-water control. Rain Forest Rescue preserves tropical rainforests and supports native rainforest families to maintain the habitats of more than half the planet’s plant, animal, and wandering conservationist species.

Nestled against the rolling hills of the Fontenelle Forest, Fontenelle Hills Golf Club's nine holes morph daydreams of long-distance ball conveyance into quickly accessed realities for area golfers. Sharpen club-wielding skills on the 32 par red course or the 34 par blue course, surrounded by lush flora and fauna, including roaming deer and their cartoon-bunny sidekicks. Whether sharing a fairway excursion with a partner or stretching two solo rounds between visits, golfers discover challenging chip shots thanks to the courses' dual pin placements and tee boxes. The club boasts more than 2,000 yards of inviting green vistas, allowing guests to putt the day away without the cramped conditions and property damage of in-home driving ranges. Players schlep clubs and cohorts around Fontenelle's scenic pastures behind the wheel of one of the club's motorized carts.
At each of the two Discount Laundry locations scattered around Omaha, orderly rows of Maytag and Speed Queen washers and dryers await dirty laundry like a phalanx of soldiers awaiting orders.

Though few people need to stick around long, those who stay can take advantage of amenities such as snack machines, cable television, video games, and wireless Internet. The licensed, bonded, and insured staff at each location also offers pickup and drop-off services, with same- and next-day turnaround available.
