  • Conservation Lecture: Planting Trees, Changing Lives

    Feb 13th, 2020
    6:00pm - 8:00pm
    Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

    Join John Leary as he shares how efforts planting trees create a better future for people and wildlife around the world. The Forest Garden Program orchestrated by Trees for the Future is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can change their lives forever. Forest Gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and can quadruple a family's annual income. Naples Zoo has funded the planting of more than half a million trees (619,024 to be exact) through this passionate organization. 

    Cost: $10 CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS   | Naples Zoo Members Free, Tickets Required
    Lecture starts at 6:15 pm, with doors opening at 6.
