Trees help not just the environment but the people who live in them too. Trees help clean the air, clean water, reduce effects of climate change, save energy, benefit wildlife, and more! Read more about the facts at https://www.arborday.org/trees/treefacts/
Find out if your city is a part of Arbor Day’s “Tree City USA” network, a program that helps cities and towns all over the nation develop and widen their public tree areas. You can also get involved by starting your own tree planting events. Find more information on “greening up your city” at the Arbor Day Foundation’s website:
“You are the national parks, and no matter who you are, or where you come from, the parks are you too.”
Our over 400 national parks preserve 84 million acres of the world’s most treasured landscapes, ecosystems, and historical sites. Your gift will help the National Park Foundation protect these treasured landscapes for generations to come.
Through initiatives like Every Kid in a Park and public awareness campaigns like Find Your Park, the National Park Foundation works with partners to protect our national treasures, connect families and kids with the outdoors, and inspire our next generation of park stewards.

We had the pleasure to meet with two members of the Delta-Sierra Club here in Stockton, Margo Praus and Dick Abood. We highly encourage students at Pacific to get involved with the Sierra Club in Stockton. Meetings occur at the Central United Methodist Church right across the street from University of the Pacific on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 pm. The Delta-Sierra Club is currently focusing on the topics: Clean Air, Clean Water, Clean Energy, GMOs & Food, and Transportation. We strongly believe the Delta-Sierra Club has made a huge impact on the San Joaquin Valley and John Muir would be proud of his legacy.
Please check out the Delta-Sierra Club website below to explore more ways in which you can get involved.
“The Great Sierra River Cleanup is the premier volunteer event focused on removing trash and restoring the health of waterways throughout the Sierra Nevada Region. This cleanup is an annual event coordinated by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and held in conjunction with California Coastal Cleanup Day to encourage good stewardship from the source to the sea.
The Cleanup kicks off Sierra Nevada Watershed Protection Week, established in 2015 (ACR 22, Dahle) to highlight the importance of the Sierra Nevada Region to the entire state. More than 60% of California’s developed water supply originates in the Sierra Nevada and millions of visitors travel to the Sierra to hike, camp, and sightsee. Whether you think of Tahoe, Yosemite, Mammoth, or the Giant Sequoias — the Sierra connects us all.”
