Tree Love

Help your tree thrive so it can provide shade, beauty and habitat, clean the air and water, and make our cities and towns healthier and more livable for decades to come.

Why Plant Trees?

Trees are constantly working for us. They clean our air and water, help us save energy, provide wildlife habitat, and increase our quality of life. They are a legacy we plant and leave for future generations. Learn more about how trees impact our community health and how you can bring the benefits of trees to your neighborhood.

Bear River Habitat Trail Workday

Saturday, July 21 8:30A - 11:30A

Join us as we fight invasive weeds, care for young native plants, build things, and get ready to open the Bear River Habitat Trail to the public. We will meet on the third Saturday morning of the month all summer long to work on a variety of tasks that will help make this space beautiful and safe for the public. These events will occur during hot weather conditions and will involve hard work with tools, so they are not the best events for our youngest volunteers.
