EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2014

THE STORY:

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 Texas is giving back to our green friends and taking fundraising to new heights with Charitree on April 26-27 at Fair Park.

To remind people of the fun and freedom of tree climbing, some of the 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 Saturday, April 26. While many of our participants are still under wraps, we are honored to announce CNN Hero of the Year, Chad Pregraske, will be joining the fun and climbing for Charitree. 

Chad Pregracke has devoted his life to making a cleaner and more beautiful world. Through his nonprofit, Living Lands & Waters, Pregracke has spearheaded countless community cleanups across the country and collected more than 7 million pounds of trash in the past 15 years. 

Let’s cheer on Chad Pregracke as he climbs for Charitree!  

1. Donate to our Crowdrise page. All funds will be donated to the Urban Forestry Advisory Committee of Dallas and the Texas Historic Tree Coalition.

  • $25 will provide life-sustaining water for a recently planted tree.
  • $100 will provide water-conserving material 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 26-27, at Fair Park, all Earth Day Texas attendees over the age of 6 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.
