HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

LA is rich in natural beauty. But along the way, we've over-paved this paradise. Many LA neighborhoods are almost completely covered in asphalt and concrete and sorely lacking trees and nature.  On hot days, scorching surfaces bake in the heat, endangering people’s health. Our streams and rivers are paved over, so that when it rains, water can't soak into the ground where it could add to our aquifers. Instead, it runs off into our ocean, sweeping trash and pollution onto our beaches.

We waste precious dollars trying to fix these problems with even more building. But the answer is simple: bring nature back to our city streets and neighborhoods, and let nature do its job.

To thrive in a hotter, dryer future, the people of LA need to be shaded by ample tree canopy and have a clean,  reliable local water supply. The good news is that we all can play a role in planting and caring for trees, restoring healthy soil,  conserving water, and harvesting the rain.

Help save the planet one day at a time!
