Appalachian Restoration Through Reforestation

Appalachian Restoration Through Reforestation

 Saturday, October 8, 2011,  7 PM – 9 PM

Location: Oakbrook Church 1700 Reston Parkway Reston, VA 20194

 Oakbrook’s Stewards of Creation will host a presentation by Patrick Angel, Ph.D., science and core team member of the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative (ARRI). Learn about the impact of mountain top removal and how ARRI is working to reclaim coal mined lands.

 Dr. Angel is a forester and soil scientist from Kentucky who works for the Dept. of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining and Reclamation. His roots stem from Appalachia, he has reached across all sides of the coal mining issue, and knows the science of how to grow trees in these depleted soils.

 Each Spring ARRI offers numerous opportunities for tree planting in Appalachia. If you’ve ever wanted to plant trees or take a group tree planting you won’t want to miss this event! 

 The evening presentation will be followed with light refreshments. For more information and RSVP contact Karin Slawinski, huggart@earthlink.net
