Community Cleanup and Tree Planting Activity
* Trees are vital to the existence and well-being of our environment. Not only do they improve the quality of the air that we breathe, but they are providers of food and shelter for human beings and wildlife, not to mention climate control.
By planting trees, we make up for the loss we’ve caused the planet and ourselves through the destruction of forest areas over the centuries.
* Community cleanup brings volunteers together to clean, repair, and improve public spaces or other areas (such as vacant lots or abandoned properties) that have been neglected, vandalized, or misused. Cleanup projects can involve all kinds of public spaces—parks, riverbanks, schoolyards, sidewalks, playing fields, and even parking lots.
* To increase public awareness and education on the importance of tree planting and conservation of natural forest resources for environmental protection. * To enhance environmental conservation and community cleanliness both in rural and urban areas. * To promote youth participation and self-awareness on the importance of the environment for the future generations.
