Michigan Department of Natural Resources reports that the Odwalla company is re-running its successful Plant a Tree promotion for 2009, and has doubled the funding they will put towards the trees from $50,000 in 2008 to $100,000 in 2009. Michigan is one of only 11 State Park systems eligible for the funding.
How it works
Each time someone goes to www.parkvisitor.com/odwalla and chooses Michigan, $1 will be added to our state’s tree fund. Each computer will only be allowed to participate once. The program will remain open until all funds are used, or until Dec. 31, 2009. The state with the most clicks gets the most dollars! To see how Michigan is doing, click on the Number of Trees Planted tab. As of Friday noon, we were scheduled to receive over 10,000 new trees.Please go on line and click for Michigan State Park Trees – it only takes a moment. One state park that participated last year received over $20,000. Let’s start clicking to replace ash trees lost to the Emerald Ash Borer! – Joy Landis, editor.
