Thank you, Volunteers, for Planting Trees!
Canopy Volunteers put 10 trees in the ground on 10/10/10
Barron Park Tree Planting (10/10/10)
Yesterday, twenty-five Canopy Volunteers planted ten trees at Barron Park Elementary School.  This was Canopy's first tree planting this season and our way of joining the Global Work-Party and nationwide NeighborWoods Campaign.  

Healthy trees give us healthy communities, and healthy kids!  The ten trees we planted -- Coast Live Oaks and Red Oaks -- are shade-giving, carbon-sequestering machines that will be pumping out oxygen for years to come.

Stay-tuned for other Tree Planting events in the next few months! If you have any interest in volunteering, please contact Program Director Michael Hawkins:, 650-964-6110.   
E.O. Wilson returns to Kepler's Books **
Join for a Town-Hall style discussion on October 14 @ 7:00PM
In 2009, Canopy hosted a lecture with two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author Dr. E.O. Wilson. This Thursday evening Professor Wilson will return for a Town Hall discussion on the new book, "The Watchman's Rattler: Thinking Our Way Out of Extinction," by Rebecca D. Costa.      
Dr. E.O. Wilson

What: "The Rattler Tour"
When: Thurs. Oct. 14 at 7 PM
Where: Kepler's Books:
1010 El Camino, Menlo Park

This interactive town hall-style meeting provides a "frank, unscripted discussion about how to break the gridlock which prevents us from solving our greatest threats: terrorism, a worldwide recession, the rapid depletion of the earth's resources, climate change, pandemic viruses, rising crime, obesity and declining education."
Thomas Hayden will moderate the discussion.  Mr. Hayden is a Stanford lecturer in environmental communications, and is a best-selling author and former journalist for Newsweek and US News & World Report. Dr. Michael M. Merzenich, Professor Emeritus of Neuroscience at UCSF and founder of Posit Science, will also join the panel with Dr. Wilson.
