Chesapeake Bay UTC goals responsible for the planting of 8,000 trees in 2009; Chesapeake Bay, USA; 5/5/09

Message from the Executive Director The Chesapeake Bay Journal - Seven Valleys,PA,USA
Programmatically, the individual state offices have been going great guns. Our Urban Tree Canopy initiative has planted more than 5,000 trees across the region since the fall, with an additional 3,000 to be planted in the remainder of 2009. Our goal with this initiative, as with all of our H2O Center programs, is to not only see that trees get in the ground, thus reducing runoff in our urban areas, but to use the planting events as a means to help local groups attract volunteers and raise money to support their work.
