Remember when…August Green Corps outdoor cookout and film screening in partnership with Washington Parks and People. Ahhhh….another great event. Great food too, the produce was so fresh. The films screened by WPP were so informative, and reassuring of the progress that is happening east of the river. I had no idea how great a difference trees can make in a community.
We still have several events to go before our walk in the woods comes to an end. We hope you will join us…
