Give Native Trees Today for Wildlife: Giving Tuesday
Update: On Giving Tuesday this year, we asked you to donate to help plant native trees for wildlife, and the response was truly inspiring! Friends of wildlife gave enough to plant almost 4,000 trees. You can still join in and give trees to help wildlife around the country.
Today the National Wildlife Federation celebrates Giving Tuesday – a global day for giving back – with our #Trees4Wildlife campaign to plant 1,000 native trees and benefit wildlife.
Trees are essential habitat for many wildlife species ranging from birds, insects, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Trees provide food, water, cover and places to raise young.
Every Tree for Wildlife will be planted and cared for by school children and community members, nurturing wildlife – and the next generation of conservationists – for years to come.*
Give trees like hickory for pileated woodpeckers.
Note: Your contribution assists with the purchase of trees, providing materials for tree planting (tree guards for saplings, shovels, mulch, watering supplies, gloves) and educational resources about caring for trees. A portion of your contribution supports NWF work to protect wildlife that depend on trees as part of their habitat. All trees planted are native to the region in which they are planted. Contributions go towards native tree planting events for youth in schools, parks, and other public places across the country. Species and tree planting locations are based on need and therefore specific information for each donation cannot be individually identified. See a listing here of some completed tree plantings.
