Seeds of Hope Treeplanting Program

Reforesting Bastrop State Park in Texas and the Eburru Forest in Kenya

“It’s the little things citizens do. That’s what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees.”
– Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize and Founder of the Green Belt Movement

In response to the devastating fires in Bastrop, Texas over Labor Day 2011, The Nobelity Project put our tree-planting resources to work. In 2013 and 2014 we connected the needs of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and created an educational opportunity for local high schools. With the support of the Applied Material Foundation and Silicon Labs, the Texas Conservation Corps, and Keep Austin Beautiful, we have successfully planted 625,000 loblolly pine trees in Bastrop State Park. Perfect for your AP Environmental Science class field trip. Transportation stipends available.
