A couple of clicks will plant trees in our State Parks!

A simple and free way to help our Virginia State Parks!
Read the article below by Nancy Heltman on
This is our third year participating in the Odwalla Tree Planting promotion, the fourth year thatOdwalla has donated money to America's State Parks to help them buy trees. So far Odwalla has donated $350,000. This year their plan is to donate $100,000 more. We want as much of that donation to come to Virginia State Parks as possible and you can help.
We want YOU to be in our TREE ARMY!
As you know, this is our 75th anniversary and our original six parks and four other were developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Another name for the CCC was Roosevelt's Tree Army.
All you have to do is click here and then provide the requested authorization information. Odwalla does not use this information to spam you or sell a list with your information. It's just to keep people from cheating by setting up bots to vote.
Virginia State Parks
Virginia State Parks use the trees to beautify our parks, add screening between campsites, replace trees lost from storm damage or disease, and to discourage the public from making unofficial trails that threaten sensitive habitat. We use our dedicated corps of volunteers to plant the trees. To get an idea of what we do with the trees, check out this video we made to help convince people to plant trees in our Virginia State Parks.

PLEASE SHARE this information with as many people as you can. If we just got every Twitter follower, enews subscriber and Facebook Fan to plant one tree, we would do better than the last two years combined!
When you visit one of our parks and get the new Welcome Map, look for the Odwalla ad. There will be a secret code that will give you the opportunity to plant another tree. And be on the lookout as last year Odwalla came back and let folks plant more trees. We will let you know if that happens!
Thank you for helping get this much needed donation money!

BRFAL Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalist wants you to get outside and explore! Learn something new today, our state parks are a great place to do just that!
