This site is pretty much amazing! You should totally check it out.
Here’s how it works:
Go to the site, click on “Yes! I want my tree to be planted in Ohio!” and it will run you through the steps. You have to put your email address in, but it’s only to track that everyone’s getting a chance to plant a tree. It’s run by Odwalla and your tree can be planted in any state of the US! Now…at this time, Michigan (MICHIGAN!! ugh!) is in first place with almost 19,000 trees! Texas is after it with 11,000+ and Pennsylvania (woot!) has just over 9,000. Ohio is way down there with 573 trees. 😦 Sheesh! We can do better than that.
Below is a blurb about our lovely Ohio state parks:
Ohio is not just the home of several American presidents. It also is the home of many state parks that lead the nation in beauty and boundless opportunities for fun and relaxation.
