TreePhilly Forest of Fame Inductree March 2019:
Why she’s tree-mendous
Krista Hill’s been volunteering with TreePhilly since she was practically a sapling. At age 14, she was already at yard tree giveaway events teaching folks the ins and outs of proper tree care like a pro. Today, you can find Krista at Philadelphia Parks & Recreation in the Community Apprentice Program, where she nurtures young minds with all sorts of cool environmental education programs. A longtime friend of environmental causes and animal rights, Krista also coordinated past clean-ups of Poquessing Creek Park in Northeast Philadelphia. She’s a clean, green machine making a real impact on her community, and we’re so happy to have her as a 2019 Forest of Fame Inductree.
You can be a tree hero like Krista, too! Check out our list of tree giveaway events this spring and reach out to the community partners nearest you to see how you can get involved. TreePhilly Giveaways S19
