1000 Trees in 1000 Days


The Plan

From the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana website: 

In 2016, the Calcasieu Parish community identified a need to restore, preserve and enhance local ecosystems. Tree planting was suggested as a project to help reach that goal.

In response, McNeese State University Harold and Pearl Dripps Department of Agricultural Science, Sasol, the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana and 11 other community organizations came together to develop and launch 1,000 Trees in 1,000 Days – an effort to plant 1,000 native trees in Calcasieu Parish in 1,000 days.

Planting locations are selected by a community-led steering committee based on enhancement to local ecosystems, wildlife habitats and other sustainability factors.
