Chatham Earth Day/Arbor Day Celebration
Celebrate Planet Earth! Join us in activities for Earth Day through Arbor Day. Three local Chatham organizations – St. Christopher’s Earth-Honoring Faith Committee, Friends of Trees, and the Chatham Conservation Foundation have joined together to provide our community with eight environmental/conservation programs. These programs are free (except the Orpheum film), open to the public, and designed to educate and entertain people of all ages, from four to ninety four! A central theme will be “To save the planet, we must save trees”. We hope to build awareness of the importance of trees to our own heath, our community’s health, and that of our planet.
