Conservation District Annual Dinner to Feature TREES Performance


(Pike County, PA)—A hike through the forest might feel very different if you imagine a network of communication happening below your boots. This year, the Pike County Conservation District Annual Dinner will feature a live performance of TREES by NACL Streets. TREES is about the connectivity, communication, and co-operative existence in forests.
The Annual Dinner, which is open to the public, will be held Thursday, November 1, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, in The Waterfront Room at Silver Birches Resort on Lake Wallenpaupack. The cost is $35 per person for a buffet-style meal and the performance. RSVPs are requested by Thursday, October 25.
The event is a celebration of the natural resources of Pike County, and the great conservation work completed by Conservation District partners, its Board of Directors, and staff.
The evening begins with a social gathering at 6:00 PM, which is cash bar, followed by dinner and welcoming remarks at 6:30 PM. The performance of TREES takes place at 7:30 PM.
“TREES is a metaphor for our own humanity as we search for and build communities,” says NACL Streets Director Tannis Kowalchuk, an actress and teacher dedicated to creative place-making and community engagement. The original stilt walking performance, which includes drums and accordion, is based on the bestselling book The Hidden Life of Trees by German forester Peter Wohlleben.
“Traditionally, the sustainability equation has included the three pillars of people, planet and profit,” says PCCD Executive Director Michele Long. “More recently, that equation has been broadened to include culture as a fourth pillar. It is through that perspective that we welcome NACL Streets to share their original work, which blends science and art, and was created by local people under professional direction.”
Visit the Events page at PikeConservation.org for more information, or RSVP before October 25 to pikecd@pikepa.org / 570-226-8220.
