Trees Planted:  


Since 1998, Trees, Water & People has helped communities protect their natural resources by encouraging local people to play an active role in their management. Our work in the Western United States is no exception.

In Northern Colorado, we have concentrated on planting trees, restoring watersheds, and educating the next generation about environmental stewardship. We have hosted more than 165 restoration events and planted over 5,000 trees, all with the help of more than 6,000 volunteers. We have also worked with the local school district to raise funding for renewable energy installations and outdoor classrooms.

Trees, Water & People is working to continue local restoration through our partnership with the Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV). Together, we will help rehabilitate degraded ecosystems in Colorado as well as train community members to protect and conserve their local environments.
