What if every child had the opportunity to plant a tree?
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.
When children plant trees they can learn:
- hands-on experience changing the world by learning how to plant and care for a tree
- tree science and ecology
- forest connectivity and cooperation
- compassion for trees
- tree conservation
