Where: 101 East Wilson Street, Madison  /  map:  http://tinyurl.com/29ppofz

When:  4:30-7:30 PM

http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/projects/d1/hsrail/need.htm

We (WISPIRG and others) need people outside the building with signs, handing out literature, greeting people who are attending.  We need people inside expressing support.

Please bring a home-made sign – “Rail YES!!” or something short like that.  Spread the word – forward this to other supporters.  You better believe the Great Train Robbery folks will be there trying to derail this. Let’s show up in force and help get that track nailed down!

Preserving and Enhancing the Urban Forest: Can the successful Milwaukee example be applied to Madison?

Monday, September 21st, 2009

This just in from Gary Tipler, Madison’s pre-eminent historic preservationist:

Preserving and Enhancing the Urban Forest

6:30 p.m., Wed., Sept. 23, 2009

Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jenifer at Brearly

The program will review Milwaukee’s successful program for urban forest protection during street construction projects and discuss Madison’s current procedures and urban forestry program with Madison’s City Engineering staff and City Forester. Historically, the street trees as shade trees have helped define the city’s historic landscape and should be protected.

Free and open to the public.
