“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues.”
― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
We’re very lucky to have many voices speaking and acting to save our trees because the loss of canopy in Mecklenburg County is dramatic. Commercial and residential development, billboard carnage, and other pressures are threatening one of our important resources, our beautiful trees. Join us Wednesday, May 22, at 6:30 for “1 Tree, Two Trees, Old Trees, New Trees“. The speakers are Dave Cable, Executive Director of TreesCharlotte, and Patrick George, Chair of The Queen’s Crown.
TreesCharlotte is a public/private collaborative dedicated to planting 15,000 trees annually through volunteer efforts. The collaborative also educates Charlotte’s residents on the importance of the canopy and ways to plant and preserve trees.
The Queen’s Crown promotes the recognition of the majesty of our area tree canopy. The goal is to have people feel as if they can take pride in ownership of, and responsibility for, the Queen’s Crown.
The meeting starts off at 6:30 PM for pizza, refreshments and a chance to meet and socialize with other Sierra Club members and friends. The business meeting and program will begin at 7:00 PM. Non-members and potential new members are very welcome!
Central Piedmont Sierra Club meetings are held in the Mahlon Adams Pavilion at Freedom Park, 2435 Cumberland Avenue, Charlotte, NC, 28203. Cumberland Avenue is off of the 1500 block of East Boulevard.
The program is free and open to the public and you do not have to be a member to attend. Free parking is available.
Bring a friend or two; you’ll be glad you did! See you there…
