Plant a tree – For your health!

“Trees provide the very necessities of life itself. They clean our air, protect our drinking water, create healthy communities, and feed the human soul. But these life necessities are threatened around the globe.” Learn more about how you can receive a free tree at https://www.arborday.org/ .

Kansas City is putting together a master plan aiming to plant 15,000 trees a year for 25 years in an effort known as urban reforestation. We find out how that effort is coming together and speak with a researcher who shares the science behind the benefits of trees (https://www.kcur.org/post/seg-1-youth-climate-activism-seg-2-urban-reforestation-seg-3-stonewall-riots-choral-piece#stream/0).
