BENEFITING: EARTH DAY TEXAS INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2013
When’s the last time you climbed a tree? For many of us, it’s been awhile. And with the hustle and bustle of life in Dallas, we often forget just how important trees are to our community. They provide shade and recreation and help keep our environment clean and pristine.
Earth Day Dallas is giving back to our green friends and taking fundraising to new heights with Charitree on April 20 at Fair Park.
To remind people of the fun and freedom of tree climbing, Charitree participants will strap on a helmet and a harness and scale their way to the top of two historic live oak trees in Fair Park, starting at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 20. We’re keeping our participants under wraps for now, but you’ll be surprised by who you see up in those trees!
- $25 will provide life-sustaining water for a recently planted tree.
- $100 will provide water-conserving mulch for a recently planted tree.
- $500 will plant a tree.
- $750 will plant and maintain a tree for three years.
- $1,000 will provide research for Historic and Indian Marker Trees.
- $5,000 will provide recognition and celebration of our Historic and Indian Marker Trees.
2. Climb a tree! Throughout Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21, at Fair Park, all Earth Day Dallas attendees over the age of 5 can sign up to climb the very same trees used for Charitree. All climbers will receive a brief training from professionals with Tree Climbers International before hitting the bark.
