Because Squirrels Need Housing too!

If you’ve ever walked around the Capitol Park Neighborhood then you’ve likely met our friendly neighborhood squirrels. At CADA, we strive to ensure that Capitol Park Neighborhood is a neighborhood for all, including our friends the squirrels, and that it is environmentally, socially and fiscally sustainable. In honor of Earth Day (April 22, 2011) and Arbor Day (April 29, 2011), CADA encourages everyone to plant a tree or support a tree-planting organization

Here’s a list of organizations that love to plant trees:

Sacramento Tree Foundation
The Sacramento Tree Foundation's mission is to grow healthy, livable communities in the Sacramento region by empowering people to plant, protect, and learn about trees. We are leading the effort to plant 5 million trees in our region.
With your help, we can do it.

Arbor Day Foundation
They inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.

Eco-Libris enables people to do something reasonable, affordable yet with an impact: plant one tree for every book they read. They believe that taking responsibility for the environmental costs of the books we read is only natural.

Friends of the Urban Forest
Friends of the Urban Forest is a nonprofit committed to the belief that tree are a critical element of a livable urban environment.

International Society of Arboriculture
Through research, technology, and education, the mission of the ISA is to promote the professional practice of arboriculture and foster a greater public awareness of the benefits of trees.

Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has launched a major worldwide tree planting campaign. Under the Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign, people, communities, business and industry, civil society organizations and governments are encouraged to enter tree planting pledges online with the objective of planting at least one billion trees worldwide each year.
