Trees for Houston to Work with Local School During National NeighborWoods Month

Sponsored by The Home Depot Foundation
Houston – October 1, 2006. Trees for Houston today announced that it will host the Elementary School Workshop. 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). Trees for Houston is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.

This hands-on planting will be at a local elementary school (location to be announced).
“It’s great to be working on an important regreening effort at a time when other organizations are doing so as well,” said Catie Ross. “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.” Since founding in 1983, Trees for Houston has planted and maintained over 239,280 trees and seedlings on Houston area freeways, parkways, and school campuses.
Trees for Houston’s celebration will take place as follows:
Oct 21, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
