California ReLeaf Public Awareness of Trees Award

Partnering with California’s official statewide conservation education program “Save Our Water,” California ReLeaf created the “Save our Water and our Trees!” Campaign with the goal of raising awareness on the importance of proper tree care during the historic drought. Through a sophisticated and aggressive campaign, “Save our Water and Our Trees!” gives residents and agencies tips on how to water and care for trees during the drought to make sure they survive.
