A box of chocolates…sure, it’s a sweet Valentine’s Day gift, but ten years from now, your special someone will barely remember those truffles. A dozen roses? Pretty to look at, but often grown under conditions that are not great for the environment.
Luckily, we’ve got the cure for the common Valentine’s gift–for $50, or about the cost of a dozen roses, you can plant 25 daffodil bulbs or one native tree sapling in one of Pittsburgh’s parks!
These are gifts that promise longevity and stability: daffodils naturalize and multiply, and landscape trees can live for decades, even centuries. And thanks to current threats like emerald ash borer and oak wilt disease, replenishing our tree population is more important than ever.
All you have to do is make your donation by February 7, and we’ll send your sweetie a card notifying them of your gift (or, if you like, we’ll send it to you so you can personalize it).
Showing your love for the parks has never been easier!
