HarvestFest 2008 and Star Party Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
The project includes the City of Southlake’s annual HarvestFest celebration which is from 2 to 5pm at the Bob Jones Nature Center. There will be nature-related activities such as hikes, crafts, and games to celebrate nature in the fall. This will be the first time the celebration will be held at the Nature Center which is located in the Eastern Cross Timbers ecosystem of Texas. The Bob Jones Nature Center volunteers will also be hosting a place for families to bring a picnic dinner and to make s’mores before the fall Star Party, 7:30-11:00pm, an opportunity to explore the skies above the Cross Timbers.


Date: October 4, 2008
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Bob Jones Nature Center & Preserve.
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.
