East Palo Alto Phoenix Academy - October 8th and 15th 

Thank you to the amazing 187 volunteers who planted 60 trees at East Palo Alto Phoenix Academy with Canopy. Together, we helped open a new school by transforming the campus with drought-tolerant and climate adapted trees. We also want to thank everyone who came out on Saturday, October 8, 2011, for our Planting Leader Training and Refresher.  

Thank you to our Planting Leaders:

Veterans Day at the VA - November 11  VA planting photo

Cool temperatures and intermittent rain didn't deter dozens of volunteers from planting 11 trees at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System as part of a Veterans Day observance. "They don't stop war for rain," said Palo Alto VA spokeswoman Kerri Childress, "so the least we could do is plant a tree." Read Jason Green's San Jose Mercury News Article here.

At the beginning of this month we were delighted to have 45 community volunteers and Midtown Residents join Canopy and the City of Palo Alto to plant 27 of 54 new trees at Greer Park!  Annette Glanckopf and Peggy Kinney of the Midtown Neighborhood Association worked with Peter Jensen, Public Works Landscape Architect (also an arborist) and Gino Segna, Tree Section Project Manager, to find a creative and attractive way to plant 54 new trees!
