Saginaw to Celebrate National NeighborWoods Month

Sponsored by The Home Depot Foundation
Saginaw, Mich. – October 1, 2006. Global ReLeaf of Michigan today announced that it will plant/maintain 20 trees as part of their Cathedral District Neighborhood Planting. This event is one of more than 100 regreening efforts throughout the country being promoted during October, which has been declared National NeighborWoods Month by the national nonprofit, the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT). Global ReLeaf of Michigan is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.

Based on a street tree inventory, the areas most lacking canopy cover within the Cathedral District Neighborhood were recently identified, and the neighbors in those areas have all committed to caring and watering for their new trees.
“It’s great to be working on an important regreening effort at a time when other organizations are doing so as well,” said Melinda Jones. “Part of our goal is to draw attention to the good work being done at the grassroots level all across the country to improve urban and community forests.”
Global ReLeaf of Michigan’s celebration will take place as follows:
Oct 14, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Call for location.
