Rise Up Memphis Nature II!

Citizens to Preserve Overton Park (CPOP) is having its first public meeting on Thursday, June 5, 7:00pm-8:00pm, at Rhodes College in Blount Auditorium at Buckman Hall (a pdf campus map).

CPOP (which I'm now a board member of) will present a brief program on the devastating impact of the Memphis Zoo’s expansion into the Old Forest of Overton Park, and discuss strategies for protecting the remaining forest.

This meeting is open to the public. Everyone is welcome. Childcare will be available at no cost. If you need more info, contact Naomi Van Tol at naomi@spiny.com or 901-278-2396.

The mission of CPOP is to preserve and defend the Old Forest of Overton Park for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. You can visit us online at:
