We moved to a tree lined street recently, and I love it. I can walk out my door on a 90 degree day, and it still doesn’t feel oppressively hot. My car is nice and cool when I get in (though it tends to get covered in bird poop), and if it rains, it has to rain pretty hard to actually get me wet. Soon the leaves will fall off and it will get colder, and then the sun will shine through the branches and keep things a little warmer. Trees make living in a city way better. That’s the premise behind Canopy, a Palo Alto, CA based “environmental nonprofit that engages the community in the growth and care of our urban forest.” While they only focus on Palo Alto and it surrounding communities, they’re making a big difference through the power of trees.
Right off the bat I found something that I really like about Canopy (besides their love of trees). They publish their 2013 goals on their website. Far too many non-profits list a lofty mission with no mention of when they want to achieve it. And right next to the link to their goals is a link to their success stories (I’ll admit this section is a bit short on content though). If you really want to see what Canopy is doing, read up on all of their programs–it’s amazing how many different tree-focused activities are possible. If you’d like to join in on the fun, visit Canopy’s Jobs page. Right now the only position posted is part-time, but it looks great: Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator. Give it a look.
