October’s nonprofit! This month we’re pleased to honor James Mattravers, General Manager. We are grateful for James’ support of all team members, breadth of knowledge, and savvy storytelling. James has chosen Friends of Trees, who will receive an in-kind & cash donation.
We need trees more than ever. Heatwaves, flooding, and all of the increasingly catastrophic effects of climate change make it clear that every day needs to be the day for climate action. Friends of Trees has planted more than 870,000 trees and native shrubs in 120+ neighborhoods in six counties across two states. They’ve done this through engaging tens of thousands of community members, and while implementing and growing programming that aims to do this work inclusively and equitably. They recognize that not everyone has equal access to the benefits of trees and healthy urban green spaces, and their education work prioritizes increasing under-served communities’ access to, and connection with, the environment.
