Prince George’s County Rain Check Rebate

“The Family Tree Adoption Program planted trees and engaged citizens in Riverdale, Bladensburg, Landover, Glendale, Hyattsville, and Mount Rainier. The Prince George’s Stormwater Stewardship grant program funding allowed us to extend our nonprofit’s reach and to learn more about tree planting and the maintenance needed to keep trees healthy. We will build on this work and continue to engage citizens with a recent award to Global Health Education Projects, Inc.”
