Here’s a message from Rick Roti, Charlotte Public Tree Fund President:
Please join us for our 6th Annual Creek ReLeaf tree planting. This year’s event will be on November 23rd from 9 to noon in Charlotte, along Irwin Creek at Whitehurst Road. We will plant 1,800 trees to create a natural forest habitat that will help protect the creek from damaging storm water runoff. Lunch will be provided following the planting and we will also raffle off some great prizes.
To plant 1,800 trees we will need at least 400 volunteers. Register at http://www.charlottetreefund.org/?page_id=6 if you are able to participate. Please also encourage your friends and colleagues to register as well. Families and kids are welcome.
We hope you realize how important your support is to our tree planting effort. Last year 500 of you came out and planted 1,800 trees, bringing the total number of Creek ReLeaf trees planted to over 12,000. Without your support this would not be possible.
Creek ReLeaf is a collaborative effort of the Charlotte Public Tree Fund, Sierra Club, Central Piedmont Community College and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Stormwater Services. Funding this year is provided by the 704 Group and the City of Charlotte.
On behalf of all of us at Creek ReLeaf, thank you for your past support and we hope to see you on November 23rd.
Rick Roti, President, Charlotte Public Tree Fund, Inc.
