CHARLIE HABECKER MEMORIAL!!
Teacher, Trekker, Tour-Guide, Birder, Conservationist, Artist, FRIEND ... that was Charlie to all of us in TCA. We finally are planting a Memorial to Charlie at the Park Forest Library. A tree of yet unknown species will be planted this Spring with a plaque to commemorate Charlie's exceptional contribution to conservation education.
We are now accepting donations to help offset the cost of the tree and plaque and its planting. Any amount is a great amount and ALL of the donation will go towards Charlie's memory.
