Eco-Minded Flash Mob: PennFuture and Mummers Join Forces to Save Trees

I know using the phrase “flash mob” these days is as risky as yelling “fire” in a crowded theater, but trust me, this mob would rather hug trees than beat up South Street shoppers.

The mob will be made up of PennFuture, some decked out Mummers and Y.O.U., if you’re interested in joining the cause. The groups are demonstrating to save Pennsylvania’s forests and will gather on Broad and Walnut Streets in front of Governor Rendell’s office. The environmental threat of clearing forests to open room for large drilling companies is just one of the urgent issues the groups hope to draw the Governor’s attention to.

The demonstration will only last 30 minutes so if you would like to join, whip together that “Trees Have Feelings Too!” poster on your lunch break and head over to this peaceful gathering, exact details below.

Time: April 14, 12:15 p.m. – 12:45 p.m.

Location: Governor Rendell’s Southeast Office, 200 South Broad Street.
