March 2017 update

Updated: Apr 25, 2018


The campaign is really taking off – and we need your help! Spring is particularly busy. Please lend a hand if at all possible. Details are below.


Cut-and-paste newsletter article at the end of this update. Please submit it to any newsletter or social media outlet you can. NextDoor.com is particularly valuable. Last month’s article got as many “hits” from a single NextDoor posting as from all of Facebook. The “NextDoor” audience includes everyone, not just people who are the friends of environmentalists. Send to your wider community but personalize your message so people know it is from a neighbor.


Next big event - this Saturday. 9-3 pm.

Re-vision your Garden to Support Wildlife. Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax. Speakers, Hometown Habitat showing, exhibits, crafts and nature walks for kids.
