Erwin Recreation Center Beautification Workshop Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
At this beautification and tree planting project, “TWIGGY” the talking tree will teach participants about the importance of trees. We will also make earth bracelets, leaf rubs, and talk about taking care of our environment.


Date: October 15, 2008
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: Erwin Recreation Center.
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.
