Saving Forests $68 At A Time
NGC and the USDA Forest Service are proud to have formed a partnership sustaining our national and urban forests through this reforestation/forest education program.
Your Garden Club can participate in a meaningful and practical conservation project by contributing $68.00 to a Penny Pines plantation as part of the costs of replanting replacement trees indigenous to a particular damaged area. Whether by fire or by other natural catastrophe, pine trees and other trees are replaced. You may designate a specific state you wish to benefit from this contribution.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Your Garden Club can participate in a meaningful and practical conservation project by contributing $68.00 to a Penny Pine plantation as part of the costs of replanting replacement and/or trees indigenous (Not Just Pine Trees) to a particular damaged area, whether by fire or by another natural catastrophe.
We are asking our clubs to support the Penny Pines program by collecting loose change at their meetings. Create a clever container to pass around at your meetings. In the spring, we will ask you to tally up your change and give a check for the amount collected to the RIFGC Treasurer. We will in turn send the money to NGC. Under the conservation agreement, the U.S. Forest Service will do the planting using your donations together with the federal funds.
SEE YOU IN THE SPRING WITH YOUR DONATIONS
