27th Annual Forest Council “Strong Roots”
JOIN US at the 2017 Heartwood Forest Council
May 26th-May 29th, 2017
Dear Co-Sponsor and Heartwood Supporter,
We’re in the early planning stages for the upcoming Strong Roots! Heartwood Forest Council. For this year’s Council, Heartwood returns to the Katuah bioregion in the mountains north of Asheville, NC, and we want you to be a part of the process! Join us to plan programming, entertainment, publicity, outreach, and food.
About our Strong Roots! theme: For 27 years, Heartwood has grown strong roots in the eastern hardwood forest region, sprouting campaigns and digging resilience and interconnectedness among people protecting the places they love.
Do you have a suggestion or proposal for topics, speakers, or workshop leaders that reflect this theme? Do you want to share the story of your community or organization’s efforts? Send a short description of your idea to the contact below. Make sure to tell us how the idea relates to Heartwood and its Strong Roots!
Here are a few topic areas being discussed, but we’re open to more! Forest defense, local efforts in the Katuah region, creative campaigning, primitive skills, inspiration and solidarity, all things sustainable in a time of climate chaos, natural history of the Western NC/eastern TN region, kid activism program, good food and great music.
