Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Join us for our annual NeighborWoods event to learn how to become a Tree Steward and help us to acknowledge the great work our Tree Stewards and tree supporters are doing in the City of Wilmington. We will also kick-off our Trees for Wilmington tree planting campaign. Learn all about the results of our local Urban Forest Effects (UFORE) study, priority planting areas, and how you can contribute to this important effort to create more livable communities through trees. We need your help! Community groups and businesses are encouraged to sign onto a tree planting compact and officially join this exciting new initiative. A light dinner will be provided. Please RSVP.
Date: October 15, 2008
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: 1810 N. DuPont Street.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
