DALLAS -- The Up With Trees organization in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will receive $23,666 to enable high school aged participants to intern in a six-week Youth Citizen Forestry Program. The students will learn about planting and preserving trees, forestry and horticultural careers and sustainable forestry practices.

“Teaching our youth about the importance of forestry and horticultural careers is necessary to a sustainable environment and economy,” said Acting Regional Administrator Samuel Coleman. “Everything from clean air to clean water starts with protecting and understanding our forests.”
