Trees, Rivers + Land

We fund organizations that promote tree canopy expansion, river water restoration and land acquisition in the urban core.

Short-term Outcomes

  • Citizens are mobilized to enhance, expand, and protect the urban tree canopy
  • Public access rivers and tributaries have improved water quality
  • There is preserved land in areas with insufficient open space
