Did I tell you about this tree I saw...?

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.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin...
