The Sereno Group of Palo Alto is pleased to announce CANOPY as its recipient of its 1% For Good campaign for Q1 2019. Each quarter of every year, 1% For Good pledges one percent of its gross commissions to help fund the best efforts of our community-minded groups and charities that are dedicated to making positive impacts in the lives of our local residents and families here in Silicon Valley.
Through engagement, education, stewardship, and advocacy, CANOPY plants and cares for trees where people need them the most. Their mission is to grow urban tree canopy in Midpeninsula communities for the benefit of all.
Canopy’s four key strategies involves:
Engage: Plant and steward community trees in partnership with residents, volunteers, school communities, municipalities, and grassroots partners.
Educate: Create lifelong environmental stewards through exploration and education about trees and tree care.
Steward: A rigorous approach to tree care and maintenance—always engaging the community—ensures high rates of tree survival and longevity.
Advocate: Uphold and promote policies and funding that protect trees and promote a healthy urban forest.
