Environmental activist, writer, poet Julia Butterfly Hill launching Wayne State University’s Earth Week activities

To kick off Wayne State University’s Earth Week activities, the Student Environmental Action Leaders (SEAL) organization is featuring Julia Butterfly Hill, an internationally renowned environmentalist. Hill will present “It’s Your World, Take It Personally” at 5 p.m. on April 19, 2012, at Bernath Auditorium in the Undergraduate Library.

Hill brought international attention to the plight of the world’s last remaining ancient forests when she climbed 180 feet into the branches of a 1000-year-old redwood tree and refused to come down. Her historic protest to the environmental destruction caused by the clear-cutting of northern California’s ancient redwoods culminated after 738 days with a negotiated agreement that provided permanent protection for the tree, known as “Luna,” and a 3-acre buffer zone around it.
