SILVER MAPLE FOREST BENEFIT CONCERT, Feb. 4, 7:30 pm

BENEFIT CONCERT TO SAVE THE SILVER MAPLE FOREST

Sat., Feb. 4, 7:30 pm. First Parish Arlington Unitarian Universalist Church, 630 Mass. Ave.

The 15-acre Silver Maple Forest (aka Belmont Uplands) lies on the Arlington,

Cambridge, Belmont border.  It's a small river floodplain forest with a unique and fragile urban wildlife habitat.  Along with its surrounding wetlands, it also helps limit local flooding.  (map and concert tickets at http://www.belmontcoalition.org/)

Nine Arlington, Belmont and Cambridge organizations are co-sponsoring a "Save the Silver Maple Forest Benefit Concert" to be held Sat., Feb. 4, at 7:30 pm, in Arlington.  Featured performers:  The Jim Scott Ensemble (former Winter consort guitarist, composer Jim Scott, Jose Pienasoia, bass, and Mark Kohler, percussion) with special guests Stan Strickland (sax, flute), Rev. Fred Small (songwriter), Elke Jahns (flute), and Maya Apfelbaum (eco-stilt dancer).  Location:  First Parish Arlington Unitarian Church, 630 Mass. Ave.  $18 web, $20 at the door. Students $10, children free.

This important urban natural resource is threatened by a proposed development of nearly 300 units and 600 parking spaces.  This development would also degrade the natural value of the surrounding 120-acre Alewife Reservation and has been opposed by the Mass. Dept. of Conservation and Recreation and local environmental group the Friends of Alewife Reservation.

Co-sponsors include: Coalition to Preserve Belmont Uplands, Cambridge Climate Emergency Group, Green Cambridge, Friends of Alewife Reservation, Arlington Land Trust, Belmont Land Trust, Sustainable Belmont, Sustainable Arlington, and Green Port Cambridge.
