January meeting with the Dogwood Alliance
January 9, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm Free program
Join us for a presentation by Vicki Weeks, the Georgia State Coordinator for the Dogwood Alliance. Vicki will share a film highlighting Richmond County, NC, citizens’ fight to stop the construction of a massive new industrial wood pellet production plant in their community. Information will be shared on the expansion of the woody biomass industry in Georgia, followed by an introduction to the Stand 4 Forests GA campaign, and information on how you can participate in the campaign.
For over 20 years, Dogwood Alliance has worked with diverse communities, partner organizations and decision-makers to protect Southern forests across 14 southeastern states. They do this through community and grassroots organizing, holding corporations and governments accountable, and working to conserve millions of acres of Southern forests.
Meet in Day Hall of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Announcements at 6:30p, presentation at 7:00p.
