Here at Reveal we’re passionate about sustainability and expressing the beauty and value of nature. Part of our mission is to aid environmentalist efforts in reforesting natural lands around the globe. We’ve got some great news to share! Thanks to your amazing support we’re set to plant more than 12,500 trees through three upcoming projects with American Forests. One of them is right here in Reveal’s hometown state of Washington.
Along with the U.S. Forest Service, American Forests’ Global ReLeaf program is restoring 1000 acres in the Methow Valley District of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest with Ponderosa pine and Western larch to help restore watershed areas damaged by the 2014 Carlton Fire. Reforestation efforts will help protect vital wildlife in the region including three fish species: the Upper Columbia River steelhead, spring Chinook salmon and the Columbia River bull trout (pictured below). Efforts will also work to prevent recurrences of extensive flooding and soil erosion that have taken place since the fire.
American Forests has been working with its Global ReLeaf program since 1990 and has planted over 50 million trees in all 50 states and in 45 countries. We’re excited to be a part of this great work and are thankful to all of you for continuing to help make this happen! Stay tuned for updates on our other projects.
