Opequon Creek Project Team
Can you name all the benefits to humans that a tree provides? Some of those benefits may surprise you; others are simply taken for granted. Want to learn about all those benefits and meet people in our community who are working to improve the environment by planting and maintaining the tree canopy? Then come to the Opequon Creek Project Team meeting on February 1 at 7:00 pm to meet guest speaker, Tanner Haid, Urban Forestry Coordinator, Cacapon Institute.
Tanner started work as Cacapon Institute’s Urban Forestry Coordinator at the end of 2011 and hit the ground running. Tanner has a degree in Environmental Studies from Shepherd University and has work experience with the USGS and USDA. His core job is to work on a multi-year project to increase the Urban Tree Canopy in towns and communities of the Potomac Basin of West Virginia. In this role, Tanner acts as CI’s liaison between the WV Conservation Agency, WV Division of Forestry, and WV Division of Highways. He will be an organizer and spokesperson for urban forestry projects like WVCA’s CommuniTree and a community forester working with WVDOF’s Urban Forestry and Chesapeake Bay Forestry programs. Tanner and his new position were featured in newspaper and newsletter articles, he has been interviewed on the radio, and participated in numerous tree plantings, all in an effort to get this new program off the ground.
Meet Tanner Wednesday, February 1, 2012, 7:00 p.m. at the PSSD Headquarters, 65 District Way, Martinsburg, WV
