Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Beverly Hills, California, is being recognized for its commitment to preserving irreplaceable rain forest land through the Foundation's Rain Forest Rescue program.

The award will be presented at the Arbor Day Foundation's 27th annual Arbor Day Awards, to be held in Nebraska City, Neb., on Saturday, May 1. The Promise to the Earth Award recognizes sustained corporate commitment and national leadership by those who join with The National Arbor Day Foundation on special projects in education and in the planting of trees.
