Environmental Education Charity
A tree for every child
Let's teach kids how to plant a tree. The Charitree Foundation is Canada's environmental education charity for children.
These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves.
Charitree strives to give as many children as we can a tree of their own. It's about supporting environmental education programs for children by giving kids a tree to plant at their home, camp or school that is native to their region ~ and an opportunity to connect with nature and contribute positively to their world.

It's about learning to care for something beyond yourself while learning about self-sufficiency, reforestation, trees as future food sources and so much more. READ MORE
