SC members and friends are invited to Register now for Memorial Day weekend event, May 25-28.
Heartwood is a cooperative network of individuals and organizations working to protect the hardwood forests of the Ozarks, the Ohio River valley, and the Appalachian mountain region. For the first time since 2001, the Heartwood Council will meet in Pennsylvania. The four-day event will be held in May 25-28 at Boy Scout Camp Olmstead near Warren, PA, just south of the CornPlanter Land Grant. Open to all, registration can be made on-line.
The Council is a time for activists from around the region to network on issues, build our strategy together, and share a weekend in some beautiful forests. The program for the three-day event features a range of topics focused on energy policy, public lands policy and management, and extensive training in the practice of Forest Watch. Marcellus drilling represents the greatest clear and present danger, but solutions may well be connected to the efforts to mitigate urban stormwater runoff into our rivers.
Join us for music with the Tiger Maple String Band, talks by Oregon attorney Tom Buchele and former Pittsburgh City Councilman Doug Shields, canoe outings and forest hikes over the Memorial Day weekend, May 25-28.
