I just spent some very enjoyable time meeting with other members of the Sierra Club and the Western Cuyahoga Audubon group. It really felt good to meet with like-minded people who care about and like the same things I do - plants, the earth, and water. I guess we’re a bunch of bird loving tree huggers! It was very useful conversation about what we can do to instill hope and start doing something meaningful and helpful to the community that will give all of us a better feeling about our future. ~ Fran Mentch, Activist, and Co-Chair, Water Committee, NEO Sierra Club
WCAS held a third conservation project laboratory on January 5, 2018 at Bethany Presbyterian Church in Cleveland. Fifteen people attended this event. Kurt Miske opened the meeting and Tom Romito facilitated the event.
"I'm here too because it puts together two real interests of mine: native plants and birds and this activity will promote both of those." ~ Karen Czerniawski
WCAS held a second conservation project laboratory on December 1, 2018 at Bethany Presbyterian Church in Cleveland. Nine people attended this event. Kurt Miske opened the meeting and Tom Romito facilitated the event.
