Help Determine the Future of Louisville's Tree Canopy
Saturday June 7, 2014
Public Input Sought for Louisville Tree Campaign
All are invited to June 11 meeting
Erin Thompson, Louisville’s Urban Forester, will host a community dialogue aimed at crafting a public campaign to support a healthy tree canopy across Metro Louisville. The Louisville Tree Campaign Collaborative Meeting will be held Wednesday, June 11, 2014 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The location is Whitehall House & Gardens at 3110 Lexington Road. This is an effort to collectively craft the beginnings of an inclusive campaign that welcomes participation from the many groups and individuals that support a community with a healthy tree canopy. “Collective action by passionate people is inherently messy work. Embrace that,” Thompson said.
All voices are invited to take part in the discussion that will establish the first steps in pulling a public campaign together by this fall.
Meeting topics will cover whether an umbrella campaign is needed, campaign priorities, fundraising, naming or branding, communication, education, next steps and more. Anyone intending to attend the meeting is asked to RSVP to Erin Thompson at Erin.Thompson@louisvilleky.gov or (502) 574-4030.
