In honor of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary Friends of Trees is hosting a virtual, day-long celebration on our social media channels – it’s the virtual EARTH DAY PARTY WITH THE TREE TEAM! Tune in on Wednesday, April 22, beginning at 10 a.m. We’ll have Tree Talks, LIVE tree walks, and more! Here’s the schedule, and here’s the agenda for the virtual Earth Day party hosted by Friends of Trees Eugene!
THANK YOU to the sponsors of the Earth Day Party with the Tree Team!
If you’re a Portland General Electric customer, and you switch to the PGE Paperless Bill option between February 1 and March 15, 2012, you’ll reduce paper clutter, simplify your life, and help plant trees!
PGE will donate $1 in your honor to Friends of Trees.
PGE will notify you by email each month when your bill is ready to view online. Past bills are stored online, too, for easy review. It’s simple, secure, and sustainable. You can also pay your bill online!
Sign up here for Paperless Bill.
Thank you for reducing paper use and supporting Friends of Trees. And thank you, PGE, for leaving a legacy with your generous support over the years.
Above is a photo of a PGE employee’s family planting with Friends of Trees in Forest Park.
I think that I shall never see
a poem as lovely as a tree–
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against a volunteer in a safety vest
A tree producing oxygen all day
Will leave a legacy that’s here to stay
Planting a tree is an amazing sensation
Improving the urban canopy of this stumptown nation
Friends of Trees is a group that’s growing
Deftly using communications to help its sowing
With a PR campaign that calls us to action
Bringing communities together with great satisfaction
“Plant it Portland” takes us from “grey to green”
Using social media and the YouTube screen
Yes, I think that I shall never see
A nonprofit as PR savvy as Friends of Trees
Poems are made by fools like me
But you too can plant a tree
