The Chatham Daily News - - NEWS - DAILY NEWS STAFF

The Chatham-Kent Pub­lic Li­brary in­vites pa­trons to cel­e­brate Earth Day a few days early and learn about the his­tory of Chatham-Kent’s trees.

The Lower Thames Con­ser­va­tion Author­ity presents ‘A Liv­ing His­tory: Trees of Chatham-Kent’ at the Chatham branch meet­ing room on Thurs­day at 6:30 p.m.

The film is 50 min­utes long and fea­tures eight lo­cal peo­ple talk­ing about eight dif­fer­ent her­itage trees found through­out the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

This is the sec­ond doc­u­men­tary cre­ated by lo­cal film­maker Wes Mcdon­ald. It ex­am­ines the his­tory, ecol­ogy and im­por­tance of these trees in our lives.

This view­ing will open with a short in­tro­duc­tion by Ran­dall Van Wag­ner, LTCVA man­ager of con­ser­va­tion lands and ser­vices. He will also be avail­able to an­swer ques­tions fol­low­ing the film pre­sen­ta­tion.

This a free pro­gram and no reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired.
