Corporate responsibility: Tree plantings
Green Macomb is seeking corporate volunteers and sponsors. A volunteer day consists of a one-day tree planting where staff assist trained professionals with planting and cleaning up parks, drains and other public space. The Green Macomb Program is also seeking corporate sponsorship opportunities to help fund additional projects - such as property acquisition for regional greenways, habitat restoration or local rivers and streams and other green infrastructure projects.
Interested in either of these opportunities? Please email Amanda Oparka at Amanda.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consumers Energy Planet Awards
Macomb County received an award from the Consumers Energy Foundation for plantings in 2022 and 2023. There are at least 1,000 trees available and, unlike past grants, there is funding for shrubs and native seed mixes. This funding is to be used in communities that are serviced by Consumers Energy (consumersenergy.com/company/service-territories).
