Attend the first public meeting of the Concord Wildlife Alliance August 5
The Concord Wildlife Alliance is the newest chapter of North Carolina Wildlife Federation and is seeking new members. Approximately one year ago, the Concord City Council established a goal to certify Concord as a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation. A citizen committee that includes local NCWF members was formed to achieve this goal, with establishing CWA as their first step towards Community Wildlife Habitat certification. CWA invites everyone who is interested in wildlife and natural resource conservation to attend its first public meeting on Tuesday, August 5 at 6:30 p.m. at McGill Baptist Church located at the intersection of Poplar Tent Road and George W. Liles Parkway. A speaker from the NCWF will talk and answer questions about gardening for wildlife and back yard certification. CWA plans to hold public meetings at this time and location the first Tuesday of every month. Learn more and how to join at concordnc.gov.
 
Take a stand against crime on National Night Out
National Night Out (NNO) occurs annually on the first Tuesday in August, and is celebrated in every city, town, and village in the United States. Across the nation, residents get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention.  In addition to increasing awareness of crime, NNO also strengthens neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime! On Tuesday, August 5, be sure to get out and know your neighbors, and keep your porch light on as a sign of vigilance against crime.
