Akron: Planting Trees

For this Unified Promise, the goal was to help the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to help plant over 400 trees to stabilize the local ecosystem. With the help of our 17 volunteers and the other groups participating we were able to plant all 400 of those trees! In addition to helping the local ecosystem, our members were able to plant those trees in memory of a loved one. Volunteers created small notes to plant with their trees, and then recorded the trees’ coordinates so they can visit in the future as well as share with family and friends. The day was truly special and the legacy we left behind for our loved ones will grow throughout the years and volunteers and their families will always have the opportunity to go back and visit their trees.

A special thank you to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park for having us, and letting us make this Unified Promise such a personal one.
