Lunch & Learn
We host a very casual monthly brown bag lunch at the TreeHouse. Each month, we invite a Trees Atlanta staff or crew member, volunteer, or friend to present an interesting environmental topic for discussion. Brown bag Lunch & Learns are typically on the second Thursday of each month.
In July, Trees Atlanta volunteer, Lawrence Richardson, will give us a brief glimpse into the history and challenges facing Suriname, a country dominated by vast swaths of tropical rainforest on the northeastern coast of South America, with a focus on the trees and the people who live there. Having lived in and traveled throughout Suriname, Richardson will share his personal experiences and photos from his most recent visit to the former Dutch colony where deforestation for timber is a major environmental challenge.
