Come one, Come all! Join us as we celebrate a wonderful experience in urban environmentalism!
Funded by TD Green Streets and sponsored by the City of Bethlehem and volunteer organizations, the 100 Trees Project planted one hundred trees in Bethlehem parks on April 30. More than 140 volunteers participated in the planting. Over the summer, the 100 Trees Project sponsored Bethlehem Area Public Library tree story hours and funded new books on trees. There were tree care workshops, tree walks, and lots of watering events. Participation has been amazing.
The culminating activity is a community forum on Bethlehem’s urban forest and its future. Danielle Crumrine, Executive Director of Tree Pittsburgh, will be the featured speaker. Danielle is a nationally known and inspiring leader for community tree projects. Her visit is devoted to talking with all of us about what to do next to organize, fund, and advocate for trees for Bethlehem’s streets, front yards and parks.
The public is invited to this event, scheduled for Saturday, September 17 at the Ice House on Sand Island. Event sign-in begins at 9. LUNCH is included. Please come for part or all of the program and register (quick form to fill out: https://goo.gl/forms/umQmLWSxj4TrHjgz2) so we can get a lunch count.
Representatives from our funders, TD Green Streets and Arbor Day Foundation, will be present along with invited City officials.
