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.
