Acres for the Atmosphere is a roll-up-your-sleeves tree-planting and educational effort led by PBI Ambassadors and Climate Alliance graduates with help from community partners and members of our Arctic Ambassador Center network. It was started by graduates of the 2009 Climate Alliance Camp.
With PBI’s continued support, the group works to offset the effects of climate change to help save not only the polar bear, but many other species. Members organize planting events within their communities and carry out energy conservation campaigns. These community events help foster a sense of responsibility for the local environment, and promote respect for the global environment as a whole.
The program involves tree planting, learning, and FUN! Participants plant trees in local communities and also help educate the public about the benefits of tree planting to counteract a warming climate. Check out the group's:
- Poster showing participants in action
- 2012 Scrapbook of accomplishments
- 2011 Scrapbook of accomplishments
These PBI Ambassadors are passionate advocates for conservation and have the potential to reach millions of people with their message. To find out about the benefits of trees compared with other materials in our environment, take a look at The Facts About Trees & Wood.
