Join us for "the good, the bad and the ugly" tour of Southwest Center City's trees. Learn about the community work that has reduced the bad and the ugly and created more of the good! The tour will discuss some of the stresses on the local tree canopy in a Center City neighborhood that has experienced a tremendous amount of construction over the years, and the efforts to preserve mature trees and to re-grow what has been lost. The tour will be accompanied by the distant sounds of the Philadelphia United Jazz Festival that will be happening in the neighborhood and will be the second focus of this tour. We will conclude our outing at the PHS Pop Up Garden on the 1400 block of South Street with food and drinks! The tour will be lead by Marcus Ferreira, who leads the SOSNA Green Tree Tender Group's greening efforts and aids neighborhood greening efforts through complimentary leadership roles with SOSNA Green and the local neighborhood and business associations.
Location: Tour begins at 17th & South Sts, Philadelphia, PA
Fee: Free, but advance registration is requested.
