1,000 Trees Project Continues
On April 20, 21 and 22, in celebration of Earth Day 2023, 274 volunteers assembled at Geauga Park District’s new Veterans Legacy Woods to plant 350 trees with the incredible help of 16 incredible sponsors and three in-kind sponsors. The park district appreciates these supporters.
The next goal is engage the community in planting 300 more trees Oct. 12 and 13, then the last 340 trees toward its 1,000-tree goal in celebration of Earth Day 2024.
There are multiple ways to get involved (by Oct. 1, please), with additional details posted on the park district website.
Back the mission with funding. Sponsorship packages offer a variety of opportunities to promote a business or organization while we work together to help our environment. Send support by credit card or check.
Team up to help plant and protect. Volunteer packages offer recognition and take-home gifts for groups who plant trees on Oct. 12 or 13. Volunteers will work together to plant young trees and build fencing for their protection. Create a team of friends, family or coworkers – or, if one works in human resources or owns a small business, consider engaging one’s employees in a wellness day they won’t soon forget.
