Clear Channel Outdoor 

Planting a tree is a simple but powerful step to community activism and engagement. Over the past two years, Clear Channel Outdoor partnered with the Sacramento Tree Foundation to develop a shade tree beautification project along Highway 160. Their enthusiasm brought together many community organizations to implement a plan to transplant and steward up to 50 native trees this October for NeighborWoods month. Help from Caltrans, the Woodlake Improvement Club, the North Sacramento Chamber of Commerce, and the Woodlake Swim Club will make this planting a truly community-based event.
