Description:

Trees for the Future with John Leary

Planting trees to reverse desertification? Sure. But that's just the start. Done the right way, restoring agricultural lands with a diverse combination of trees and crops can address water scarcity, hunger, poverty, climate change and forced migration. 

John Leary, Executive Director of Trees for the Future, will share just how it works through their Forest Garden Program which provides families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 400% increase in their annual income. Come and be prepared to be inspired about what the future can be.

We'll gather for an informal mixer from 6 to 6:45 p.m. followed by his presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater from 7 until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors. RSVP TODAY.

Cost: General Public: $10 (pay at door)  | Naples Zoo Members: Free | RSVP TODAY.
