The Trees for Wildlife program is committed to only planting native tree species at each of our events, which will help protect and restore the wild places that nurture life.
The trees you have sponsored are being planted through the National Wildlife Federation's partnerships with schools, local government, and other non-profit organizations. The community-based groups listed below have planted and committed to care for these trees for years to come, benefiting the local communities and wildlife!
Ann Arbor, Michigan (500 trees)
The National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Regional Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, gave away individual tree seedlings to interested participants at the Great Lakes Bat Conservation Festival held at Washtenaw Community College on September 27, 2014. The donated native tree species were recommended as habitat for local bats. For more information, please see the Great Lakes Bat Festival website.
Mulberry Grove, Illinois (400 trees)
More than thirty junior high and high school students attending Mulberry Grove Junior High and High Schools successfully planted 400 trees, provided by the National Wildlife Federation, in October 2014. The students, along with school faculty and community members, planted the trees along the perimeter of their school property in an effort to beautify the school and to instill a sense of pride in the students and community. In addition, the students learned about keeping trees healthy and being a good citizen.
Naples, Florida (2,500 trees)
Keep Collier Beautiful and the National Wildlife Federation teamed up to give away 2,500 native trees to visitors to the Collier County Yard and Garden Show last October. This is the second consecutive year the National Wildlife Federation participated in the event by providing trees and successfully contributing to the area’s native tree population. For more information please visit the National Planting Day flier on the Keep Collier Beautiful Facebook page.
