Canopy organized a fun and engaging Arbor Day celebration for kids and families in Palo Alto--teaching kids and adults about the value of urban trees through simple activities associated with trees.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the way kids learn to value trees in their neighborhoods
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the simple, well thought out and friendly education activities they arrange.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in teaching people about trees.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
1) Ensure that Bay Area urban forests grow and are protected 2) Spread the word and educate others about how valuable and important trees are in urban areas 3) Ensure that people plant area-appropriate trees so that we have trees and don't waste water!
