Tree Musketeers September 14th

Our guest at the Green Tent this Sunday, September 14th will be Tree Musketeers.

Unlike most youth groups that are run by adults for kids, Tree Musketeers was founded by third graders in 1987 as a place where kids are boss.  With a mission to empower young people to be environmental leaders, Tree Musketeers operates two programs from its South Bay headquarters.  Locally, the Hometown Program creates a “living laboratory” where young executives engage other kids in urban forestry, youth leadership and public education projects.  The young entrepreneurs then share these replicable models for implementation in other hometowns through their internationalPartners for the Planet Network.  The current thrust in both programs is the Partners for the Planet3x3 Campaign, a multi-year effort with objectives to document 3 million trees planted by three million kids.  Goals aim to create a healthy Earth, inspire youth leadership, establish global collaborations and engage the public.
