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 Winner and Founder of the Green Belt Movement
Austin HS Environmental Science Teachers! Looking for a great field trip?
Our Replant the Park program for January 2017 is now taking applications! Your students can join in on a tree-planting day in Bastrop State Park to help restore our local forests after devastating fires. Lots of classroom materials and videos are available on this site, and a park ranger will make a classroom visit if desired. We have limited transportation funds available.
To get involved or for more information, email Bailey@nobelity.org or call 512-263-7971.
This is our fifth year of planting and we hope to reach our goal of 2 million trees!
Primary and Middle School Campus Program to Replant the Planet
One Tree At A Time
Inspired by the work of Wangari Maathai (Nobel Peace Prize 2004) The Nobelity Project partners with the Kenya Forest Service in their effort to replant the Eburru Forest. Help your students make a difference and see that local acts can have global impacts! Service groups or science classes can raise funds with bake sales, lemonade stands, car washes, lunch time games – every dollar plants a tree! This is a great opportunity for your students to get involved in a truly globe-spanning project. We cap the project with a tree planted on your campus!
The One Tree At A Time program includes:
Classroom materials to teach the role that trees play in the global eco-system. Includes lots of activities and fundraising ideas.
Classroom or school-wide assembly presentation about global connections to kick off of fundraising campaign
An on-campus treeplanting to symbolize the trees planted in the Eburru Forest by your school
A chance to connect with a sister school in Kenya that is also treeplanting.
To set up a fundraiser or schedule a campus visit, email Bailey@nobelity.org.
