One-million trees planted & protected in Whatcom County — for our well-being & future.
Yes, it’s truly possible if we join together!
4 INITIATIVES OF Our Million Trees project That Need Your Help:
1. For Businesses:
Have a local business? Let’s talk! We’ll help you create innovative participatory donations for trees. As a green leader locally in your business sector, you’ll boost your bottom-line & reputation with well-publicized win-win projects. Respond to the growing desires of your customers and staff to enhance our region NOW.
2. For Individuals:
Celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, holiday or anniversary. Or dedicate your gift to a friend/family member — or honor the memory of a loved one — in a lasting, significant way. Every $10 donated will plant a tree locally — and care for it to thrive — or will protect local lands that hold old growth/significant trees.
We’re working with private and public landowners (large & small) and policy-makers, using innovative incentives (i.e. carbon credits, land trades, etc.) to protect significant older forests. Or to infill tree-barren areas where appropriate for multiple benefits.
We’re raising Whatcom’s tree awareness with community film events, author/expert presentations, on-site visits, interpretive signs, & more. All highlight the multi-faceted ways that trees enhance the health & resilience of our communities.
