About The Event

Over the next several months we will be coordinating a global service day in which groups and organizations from all over the world plant trees to honor the life and legacy of Wangari Maathai. Registration and planning for the event begins on September 25, 2014 (the day she passed) and will occur on November 30, 2015 (the first Sunday of Advent). This event is open to any faith group or secular organization. Creativity is encouraged!
