Option 1In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Pierce Conservation District is proud to join the Earth Day South Sound partnership. Together, with your help, our goal for 2020 is to plant a tree for every child in the South Sound.

People who know Pierce Conservation District know that we love trees, especially trees in the South Sound. That’s why we’re proud to announce our participation in the Earth Day South Sound campaign, a year-long community stewardship campaign to celebrate, plant, and care for trees.

Alongside partners like Metro Parks Tacoma, the City of Tacoma, the City of Puyallup, and Tacoma Tree Foundation, the District will be connecting residents with opportunities to engagecropped-EarthDayNW_Next5_green background more deeply with the trees around us. With the help of our partners and community members, we hope to grow a healthy tree for every child in the South Sound. Healthy trees keep our communities healthy by protecting our air, water, and planet. While caring for trees has immediate benefits locally, it also has universal impacts - by joining the Earth Day South Sound campaign, we’re helping to reach the global Earth Day goal of one tree for every human on Earth. To reach this goal, it will take all of us, working together.
