Public Radio Forest

Apr 5, 2014

This weekend only,  we are partnering with the National Forest Foundation and will plant 3 trees for every listener who donates to WCBE!

All trees will be planted next spring, and the location of the planting is based on greatest need, determined by the NFF. 

Last year, listeners from participating NPR stations planted 6,122 trees in the Chippewa National Forest in Minnesota!

Now is your chance to give back to the world that brings you so many beautiful things, including public radio, with a gift today. Call 365-5711 , or donate online here. Thanks!

More About The Project

  • When you become a member of WCBE this weekend only (4/5 & 4/6), you are joining thousands of other public radio listeners across the country in an effort to plant a forest of trees. This is called the Public Radio Forest Project.
  • All of these trees will be planted together in a single project in 2015 to restore the National Forest habitat. The more trees our listeners plant, the greater the impact we'll have.
  • The trees are native species to the area where they will be planted and will clean the air and water, provide wildlife habitat, and enhance recreational benefits on public lands.

About the Chippewa National Forest

  • Situated in the headwaters region of America's largest river system, the Chippewa National Forest is a water-rich landscape that sprawls across north-central Minnesota. Learn more here.
