About Trees for Wildlife

Trees for Wildlife

Trees for Wildlife (formerly Trees for 21st Century) is an educational program of the National Wildlife Federation providing adult leaders with fun, hands-on science-based activities to help young people learn about the importance of trees and how to plant and take care of trees for the future. This initiative aims to educate and prepare a generation of environmental stewards, expand the world inventory of trees and to protect and improve natural resources.

National Wildlife Federation's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future. For 76 years, National Wildlife Federation has been a leader in conservation and environmental education shaping the future of stewardship for the earth in the United States. Through our educational programs, publications and multi-media outreach, NWF is dedicated to three objectives; connecting people with nature, safeguarding wildlife and wild places, and providing solutions to climate change.

ERTHNXT merged with NWF in 2010 to extend our programmatic connections for adults and youth by offering an opportunity to learn about the importance of tress to our planets health, the ability to tangible experience to make a difference by planting trees and dedication to pass on an appreciation for nature to future generations.
