2016 Urban Forest Project Sponsorship Opportunities

It is often said that "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." We echo this sentiment, knowing that there is no better time to support the Urban Forest Project then now! The Urban Forest Project is offering sponsorship opportunities to support our programs and initiatives. Since your company has an undeniable link with trees and green space in Grand Rapids, this is an especially meaningful way to give back and support community sustainability.
