One Dollar. One Tree.

Mexico is a resting place for the migration of Monarch butterflies, one of nature's most important pollinators. Reforestation will protect these critical biodiversity habitats. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Create habitat for monarch butterflies
  • Work with indigenous communities
  • Reduce soil erosion & prevent landslides
  • This project focuses on both farmland conversion and forest restoration to improve biodiversity habitats in an essential migration corridor for numerous species, most notably the Monarch butterfly. By densely planting native species with the cooperation of local landowners and indigenous communities, we can make sure that Senguio and Ocampo's natural beauty is restored for future generations of people and wildlife.
  • Communities and landowners will be taught sustainable forestry practices such as proper planting techniques, sustainable harvesting, the importance of recycling and waste management, and land and plant protection. This will create jobs and opportunities for those most impacted by the project. 
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our Mexico projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • To maximize the impact of your donation, our partner will plant native species, including Oyamel pine, smooth-bark Mexican pine, Chihuahua pine, and Cupressus lindleyi.

WHY PLANT TREES?

Brazil Atlantic Forest Wildlife

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

With the participation of students and teachers, trees are being planted at community and school locations. All the school projects include environmental education for community members and students. The plantings increase civic participation, environmental responsibility and improve the scenic beauty of vacant spaces.

COMMUNITY GREEN AREAS

As part of this project, the Sierra Gorda population has been encouraged to establish community green areas by planting trees in community courts, chapels, and other recreational areas. This community action also generates social and civic participation, environmental responsibility, and improves scenic beauty.

ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS

With the participation of children, youth, and adults in reforestation, the community will develop environmental awareness and feelings of respect and responsibility toward their environment. As a result of this project, the natural resources of Sierra Gorda’s communities are will be enhanced and local people will understand that healthy forests help to mitigate climate change.
