Friends,

Here's what's up with the Sierra Club's upcoming monthly programs
in Ann Arbor.  The next one's coming up on Tuesday, January 16.  We'll see graphic evidence of how whole mountains -- along with nearby creeks and forests -- are being obliterated in order to maximize the profits of coal companies in a program titled Mountain Top Removal:  The Hidden Destruction of the Appalachian Mountains presented by Dave Cooper of Kentucky.

Sierra Club-Huron Valley Group monthly meetings begin at 7:30 pm at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens, just east of Ann Arbor at 1800 N. Dixboro Road (between Geddes and Plymouth Roads).  Our monthly programs are
free and open to the public.  All are welcome, no membership is required.

Feel free to forward this message to anyone you think might be interested.

Doug Cowherd
Chair, Sierra Club-Huron Valley Group
