The Sarasota Tree Advisory Council was on the verge of being fed to the wood-chipper last year, when Sarasota County commissioners considered combining it with the Environmental Policy Task Force.
On Nov. 8, almost a year after that County Commission meeting, STAC will host its monthly meeting in the Green Room at Twin Lakes and ask the public where its priorities are on all things related to trees. Following the meeting, the community can fill out a STAC survey that will give the council and Sarasota County Natural Resources a database to form policies.
Council members finalized plans for the event during a meeting yesterday, which also included a lengthy discussion about mangroves.

Can you dig it?
Third- and fourth-grade students of Temple Beth Sholom had a chance to brush up on their paleontology skills last week while digging for faux dinosaur bones.
Sound of scholars
Local students Caleb Upton and Matthew Vaadi received some help for their upcoming studies to the tune of $1,000 each from the Sarasota Chorus of the Keys. The scholarships were made possible through the Sheridan E. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund. Both students plan to use the funds toward a career in music.
