In 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 engage
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.
