Upcoming Piedmont Connect Events

Posted by movenden on March 2, 2012

“John Muir” (Frank Helling) is coming to Piedmont Sunday evening!  Hope you can come hear him!  Kids will enjoy too (ages 10-12 and up … younger kids might be mystified by the Scottish accent).  Also, a reminder that on March 22 Stuart Moody will be presenting on “Rethinking Plastics.”


Two upcoming Piedmont Connect events:

1.An Evening with John Muir (co-sponsored by Piedmont Connect and Piedmont Community Church’s Forum Series)

Sunday March 4, 5-6:30 p.m.

Long-time National Park Ranger and retired middle school teacher Frank Helling will tell stories and share the spirit and philosophy of John Muir, bringing to life this environmental icon in an engaging presentation based on Muir’s own writings. Perhaps you know of John Muir as the founder of the National Parks and the Sierra Club, but come experience and understand the passions and interests that animated him. Children ages 10-12 and up will enjoy too!

Location: Chapel, Piedmont Community Church, 400 Highland Avenue (look for signs)


2.Rethinking Plastics (co-sponsored by Piedmont Connect and Piedmont League of Women Voters)

Thursday March 22, 7 p.m.

Join Stuart Moody for a thought-provoking presentation on the role and perils of plastics in our everyday lives. Stuart initiated the Rethinking Plastics Campaign in Marin County, which has been a major force in raising civic awareness of the plague of plastic pollution. If you missed his presentation to Piedmont Connect last Fall, this is a chance to see it! He will also show a short slide presentation titled “Bring Your Own Bag.” Members of  Connect’s Waste Reduction Group will be on hand to share their experiences too.

Location: 3 Richardson Way, Piedmont. Please RSVP at www.piedmontconnect.org. Space is very limited.
