Love your Neighbors, Trees, Land, Plants, and Animals

St. Eugene Catholic Church

72 Culvern St, Asheville, NC 28804

May 7, 5:30-7pm

All are welcome to join leaders from St. Eugene Catholic Church, MountainTrue and the Creation Care Alliance as we learn together about the trees and garden of St. Eugene’s.  This will include a brief history of the land, some basic tree identification, and creation care efforts by the congregation and school.  While this will be a “place-specific” event, we hope this model of learning about and naming trees on congregational land will become a model that is encouraged and promoted across denomination and faith.

“We cannot win this battle to save species and environments without forging an emotional bond between ourselves and nature as well – for we will not fight to save what we do not love.”
— Stephen Jay Gould
