Subject: Ash Borer Training Session this Wednesday evening

Good Morning,

At one of our recent neighborhood presentations on the Emerald Ash Borer,
you had expressed an interest in learning more about treatment options and
getting the word out to your neighbors and community groups.

We have just partnered with Wright College to provide training sessions
for ash tree activists…how to identify ash trees, how to accurately
assess their condition, how to inventory them, how to reach out to
neighbors and groups to spread the message, etc. We will be introducing
additional collateral pieces and discussing the new tracking app we’ve
developed. A beta version of it will be available the mac app store. After
a training session, we’d love to have you and your neighbors put it
through its paces
and evaluate it…assuming you have access to an iPhone. The smartphone
version is still under development.

The first session is this Wednesday, June 12th at 7:00 to 9:00 pm in
Classroom S-247, 2nd floor of the Science Building. Free parking is
available in a lot off the entrance on Narragansett Ave.

Wright College
4300 N Narragansett Ave,
Chicago, IL 60634
(773) 777-7900

The program is officially listed as “Topics in Local Ecology” and all
attendees will need to fill out registration cards when they arrive (it
will take no more than 5 minutes). The course is free.

Upon completion, all attendees will receive a certificate identifying them
as a Certified AshSaver.

Please pass the word to anyone you know who might be interested in
attending. I hope you can attend.

Always feel free to call for more information.

Thanks for your interest,
John Friedmann
