Thanks to our community, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History was able to foster a deeper connection to nature and promote a healthier, more sustainable future for all.
The decision to plant trees was driven by a commitment to biodiversity and environmental benefit, aiming to contribute to the reduction of urban heat, and provide much-needed shade for school groups to learn and eat underneath. Additionally, the newly planted trees will become integral additions to our natural collections, providing invaluable opportunities for learning and study.
The planting event witnessed vibrant engagement from volunteers and community members, uniting in a collective effort to foster a positive impact on our environment. Participants seized the opportunity to plant trees and play a vital role in enhancing the aesthetic appeal of our museum grounds. We extend our sincere appreciation to all who actively participated, volunteered, and contributed to ensuring the success of the planting event.
