Big Day of Giving


Thursday, May 7

Now more than ever, we need our urban forest, and it needs us. Please join us for Big Day of Giving to give back to our region's canopy for all the joy it brings: peaceful walks in the park, shaded bike rides, or a beautiful place to work and play outside.

This year's fundraiser is even more impactful, because it comes at such a crucial time. The Sacramento Tree Foundation is working to maintain the health of our trees and shift our programs online, but we need our community’s support to continue this important work.

While we know that not all can give, everyone can make a difference by sharing this cause that’s so close to our hearts. We hope you will join us!
