Celebrate Earth Day locally and globally- plant a native tree in your own backyard and learn about how Global Greengrants Fund is furthering the international environmental justice movement.

Their far-reaching programs benefit communities in some of the poorest and most vulnerable areas of the world. Since 1993, Greengrants has made more than 5,000 grants, totaling over $20 million! Greengrants staff will be available to discuss the inspiring work of their grantee partners.
