Did you know that the Chicago region has one of the lowest percentages of tree canopy in the country for a metropolitan area? The disparity is especially apparent in under-resourced neighborhoods.
Trees provide incredible environmental and human health benefits- and we're on a mission to increase access to these benefits so they're available to all residents, regardless of where they live.
With support from Arbor Day Foundation and WestRock, the Chicago Region Trees Initiative (chicagorti.org) will be facilitating a COVID-safe tree planting event at Lafayette Terrace Apartments on May 14, 2021. Volunteer with us and help make a difference in quality of life for seniors at this affordable retirement community!
This event is free and open to the public. There are limited spaces and registration (and masking) is required. Join us!
