Yesterday, we hosted a Great American Backyard Campout at Government House and it was great to see all of the kids outside enjoying nature. Camping is a wonderful way to get our children outdoors and it teaches them respect for their natural surroundings.
But in order for our children to be able to continue to enjoy the great outdoors, we need to make sure that we leave them with an environment that is clean, green and sustainable.
The 2011 Odwalla Plant a Tree project is an easy way to get involved in building a stronger environmental future for our children! All you have to do is click this link and “vote to plant a tree” in Maryland. For every electronic vote Maryland gets, the project donates actual, real trees to our State Parks.
It’s so easy and it takes only a minute. Need inspiration? Watch this great video:
It will take all of us working together to build a stronger environmental future for our kids. Start today by voting for more trees in Maryland.
