We Plant it Forward

We Plant it Forward's mission is to preserve and restore the natural environment to bring harmony to all life. We seek to provide opportunities for community members to get their hands working by planting trees in your community and beyond, making rain barrels to start a home water conservation program, giving out tree seedlings. We seek to educate the children and adults about issues facing our environment, about wealth of information found in natures classroom and ways people improve their environmental footprint.

Wands for Wildlife

Old mascara wands are used to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur and feathers of wild animals. They work great because the bristles are close together. As a result of the outpouring of compassion from around the world, we accept wands twice a year in October & April.
