All sessions will take place at the historic downtown Radisson Lord Baltimore near the Inner Harbor- an urban revitalization phenomenon and symbol of the city’s rebirth. Baltimore is a vital city with ambitious goals for doubling urban tree canopy through public and private cooperation.
The ACT meeting agenda on November 13 features research about trees as a tool for community revitalization, nonprofit executive networking, grassroots program models, and NeighborWoods tools for community organizing. Registration includes a ticket for the 2007 NeighborWoods Luncheon, sponsored by The Home Depot Foundation in recognition of our 2007 NeighborWoods grant partners.
Grassroots and community participation in Baltimore is especially strong- that week, we’ll learn more from local ACT members like Parks and People Foundation and Jones Falls Watershed Association about how they engage diverse communities and tour Watershed 263, an Excellence For Community Trees national winner. Tours are free of charge thanks to the assistance of the Abell Foundation.
Geared toward nonprofit executives, volunteer organizers, and community advocates, the ACT Annual Meeting & NeighborWoods Academy is a great way to energize and connect with others working to restore tree canopy and make communities better places to live.
We are grateful for the assistance of The Home Depot Foundation and the Abell Foundation in making this event possible.
