On the 22nd of March, Sustainable Blacksburg — cooperating with the Blacksburg Library — will host an evening with trees.  This event will occur in the Community Room of the Blacksburg Library.  This is intended to be a family event having the purpose of examining why humans need trees and what value they bring to our lives.  (The event is now shown on the SB Calendar.) At 6:30 PM, the doors will open so that folks can visit tables around the room holding demonstrations of the many ways in which trees are important to us. At 7:00 PMJeff Kirwan will present an illustrated talk on the “Remarkable Trees of Virginia“.  (Those who have heard Jeff speak on this subject before, say that the wanted to go home and hug every tree in their yard.) Following Jeff’s talk, there will be time to informally talk with him and yet another opportunity to view the displays and visit with the folks at the display tables. PLEASE MAKE A NOTE NOW ON YOUR CALENDAR, so that you can squeeze this informative event into your busy schedule during life’s “March madness”.  You are welcome to stop by when you can — and stay as long as you wish!
