Happy New Year!
Healthy Trees, Healthy Communities
Thank you for a fantastic 20th year bringing nature into neighborhoods!
As we reflect on twenty years planting, tending, and celebrating urban trees, we're incredibly grateful for everything that you made possible in 2016--and over the last two decades!
2016 by the numbers
A look at what you made possible:

Number of new drought-tolerant trees planted with help from community volunteers. Trees form the backbone of nature in urban areas, creating greener, healthier environments where people live, work, and play.

Number of young trees surveyed and tended by Canopy staff, Teen Urban Foresters, summer interns, and tree care volunteers. Caring for trees during the first few years ensures healthier mature trees that need less maintenance and provide long-lasting benefits.
Number of school-aged kids exploring trees through hands-on lessons. With Canopy's tree-centric school curriculum, students discover nature in their own backyard, sparking curiosity about the natural world. This year, Canopy hired a full-time Education Manager to strengthen and grow these important programs.
Number of paid urban forest internships for East Palo Alto teens. Through school year and summer sessions, our Teen Urban Foresters participate in every facet of Canopy's work: planting and caring for trees, reaching out to the community, leading volunteers, exploring the value of urban trees, and experiencing first-hand their own power to make a difference.
Number of volunteers making it happen! Planting leaders, education leaders, tree walk leaders, pruning and tree care enthusiasts, event helpers...Canopy's work would be impossible without our amazing volunteers! The estimated value of volunteers' incredible work this year is more than $209,000.
Thank you so much for all that you make possible. Warmest wishes for a happy new year!
