Subj: Fwd: Invite – Tue Mar 10 7:30pm – Tall Trees & Boulevards – Community Visioning Event
Hi Friends of Trees active in community associations around Ottawa,
I was fortunate to be able to get a ‘centrefold’ piece on tall trees, boulevards & urban planning issues published in the February edition of the Glebe Report. You can check it out at:
In the piece I ask a lot of questions. Some relate to the Bank Street reconstruction trees (half are dead – why?), some questions relate more generally to promoting tall trees in our urban neighbourhood. (If any of you have answers, and I know many of you are expert, please share your knowledge with me.
I received quite a bit of reader feedback and encouragement. The Glebe Community Association Environment Committee has now organized a public event to have a conversation about these issues this coming Tuesday (see below). Jennifer Shepherd & Nancy Young (Forestry Services) and Joe Mojsej (Infrastructure Services) from the City of Ottawa will contribute short presentations and join in the conversation. Should be good.
Please pass the invite to others that may be interested.
See you there in great numbers!
PS. The event is also sponsored by Ecology Ottawa (Tree Ottawa) and is a fundraiser for Glashan Schoolyard Greening Project — we will pass a green hat around. 🙂 Anybody that can’t make the event but would dearly like to contribute can do so on-line at http://www.glashangreening.ca/donate
