There will be new films with a wide variety of environmental themes at each screening.
Spring For The Green
Spring for the Green, the Trees Columbus annual membership party and fundraiser, celebrates the end of a successful planting season each year. Please join us for bluegrass music, Country's Barbecue and beer and wine on the beautiful grounds of the Spencer Environmental Center. Bring the family. A fenced yard provides safe and family-friendly fun for all ages.
Join Trees Columbus and the Columbus Coalition for Sounds Growth as we welcome Kathleen Wolfe, Ph.D. to Columbus as a part of our Arbor Day 2018 series of events. Dr. Wolfe's work is based on the principles of environmental psychology and her studies explore the human dimensions of open space, urban forestry and natural systems. Areas of her studies include:
* Nearby nature and human health benefits
* Public preferences and perceptions regarding urban public landscapes
* Costs, benefits and perception of urban forestry in retain and commercial districts
* Integration of urban nature and transportation systems
* Developmental benefits associated with youth participation in urban greening work
* Effective integration of science and policy through science delivery
