Participants are asked to plant a native tree alongside the green project flag in their front yard and state “I hereby reclaim this land for nature.” The project’s project’s conspicuous green flags serve as a catalyst for conversations with neighbors, who will be encouraged to join the effort and help rebuild their native tree canopy one yard at a time. Ideally, as they watch each tree grow, their interest in the environment will also grow.
