Drought Conference Call: Learn from TreePeople’s Founder and President Andy Lipkis

Without water there are no trees, and without trees there is no water.

So long as this record-breaking drought persists, Southern California’s quality and way of life remain threatened. TreePeople is on the front lines working with government agencies and utilities to produce a coordinated response to our water crisis so that we keep our tree canopy and radically conserve the water we use. But we can’t do it alone.

Please join us for a conference call with TreePeople’s Founder and President Andy Lipkis on either Thursday, February 20 at 8:00 pm OR Saturday, February 22 at 10:00 am to learn what TreePeople is organizing and what you can do.

For the first thirty minutes of the call Andy will discuss the impact of drought on people and the economy as well as TreePeople’s bold campaign. Learn about our work in coordinating a multi-agency response (top down) and grassroots action in the community (bottom up), which will maximize impact and efficiency. Andy will  also share what we can learn from Australia’s 12-year drought and the life-saving solutions they enacted to save both their environment and their communities. He will conclude with specific ways you can help and what we can and should be optimistic about.

The second half of the call will consist of a monitored Q&A. Questions will be taken through the Join.Me online chat feature. Join us. Be a part of the solution. Space is limited, so please register in advance for this important discussion with one of our state’s most innovative environmental leaders:
