Here's what some of our volunteers and participants have said about the Community Tree Planting Program:
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the last three days. Planting was great fun and the Tree Planting Technicians were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic! I do hope we can do this again!

On August 14, 2013 my family and I had a blast learning about trees and planting them. We got to pick one from a bunch of trees and I planted it to help the forest grow! We did a game called huga tree. It's where you have a blindfold on and you have to find a tree and feel it then you have to go back to the group. Then you take off your blindfold. Finally we went and pulled noxious weeds out of The ground. I like going to nature nights!
I would like to thank you guys so much for providing us with the opportunity to run our Tree Planting event on the weekend. it was a huge success and we had about 12 youth come out in the sun and plant trees, and walk away with some valuable information. Each youth said they want to do this more often and they found it to be an excellent opportunity to learn about the environment and giving back. I would like to send a huge thanks out to the Tree Planting Technicians who led the program. They were beyond fantastic with engaging the youth! So again THANK YOU so much this is a great program and we will be sure to book another planting next summer. Keep us in the loop about any other events that you are hosting and hopefully we can help out in some capacity!
