TreeFolks launches new campaign
Friday, October 23, 2020 by Tai Moses
Austin urban forestry nonprofit TreeFolks is launching a new fundraising campaign with an earthy goal – to plant 1 million trees throughout Central Texas as part of the local solution to the climate crisis. The initiative, called Keep Austin Rooted, also hopes to help reverse the trend of tree canopy loss in Austin, to help keep the city cooler. For each $3 contributed, the organization will plant one Texas native tree. To celebrate the campaign launch, the city will officially declare Friday, Nov. 6, as Keep Austin Rooted Day. City Council Member Alison Alter plans to announce the proclamation at the Oct. 29 Council meeting. Learn more about the campaign at TreeFolks.org.
