The mission of Western Reserve Land Conservancy’s Reforest Our City program is to increase Cleveland’s tree canopy by growing trees, advocating for mature trees, and engaging residents and volunteers to protect neighborhood trees. Since its inception in 2015, Reforest Our City has planted and given away over 15,000 trees in the City of Cleveland. Join us as we learn about this impactful program that’s striving to restore Cleveland’s depleted tree canopy and Reforesting the Forest City!
Tuesday, August 22 from 6:30 to 8 pm ET
