Adopt Wildlife

Trees are essential wildlife habitat for many species ranging from birds, insects, mammals and reptiles and amphibians. Trees provide food, water, cover and places to raise young and a single tree is a micro-ecosystem of the larger environment.

Adopting wildlife (symbolic) is a great way for young and old to learn about wildlife and provide habitat by having trees plant in honor of someone.
