The history of the worlds most cherished and celebrated trees does not start with paperwork and legal declarations, but with a moment of wonder and a shared story. “Did I tell you about this tree I saw…?“
Although many would assume forest conservation happens in marble halls of government or academia or, the board rooms of nonprofits, the history of protecting special trees more often than not, starts in living rooms and garden clubs. Takes root when people inspired by nature’s imagination, gather to share information and work to see a special tree
recognized and protected so that it may be enjoyed for generations to come. As the worlds largest tree, Pando is in a class of wonders all its own. Friends of Pando welcomes you and will support you in sharing your wonder through this unique education program.
Pando’s remote location and rugged landscape makes field education and opportunities to experience Pando first hand, challenging for most and impossible for many. The purpose of the Our Tree program is connect with those inspired by Pando to share their curiosity and wonder through a unique blend of educational materials we can present or provide to you.
Through a unique educational grant, Friends of Pando can assist either give a talk, or provide information, free or discounted resources, refreshments and administrative support to help you share your passion and wonder in your own time. Whether you invite us to give a talk, or, want to do it yourself, Friends of Pando will help you each step of the process.
Wherever you are in the world, invite someone from Friends of Pando to give a talk in your neighborhood or organization either online or in person. We will bring out materials, provide light refreshments and work to spend the time to help people just learning about the tree what it is, how it inspires us and what everyone can do to help ensure the tree is enjoyed for generations to come.
