Shanghai R&S Hosts 4th Annual MTP Planting Trip

· 博客 Blog

From April 16 - May 3, Shanghai Roots & Shoots hosted 209 of the top Million Tree Project donors on six separate trips to Kulun Qi, Inner Mongolia. Amongst the trip participants were student fundraisers, corporate sponsors and individual volunteers. While in Kulun Qi, participants not only planted trees with local farmers but also visited old Million Tree Project forests to prune and/or measure trees, taught environmental class at local schools, and enjoyed the delicious local cuisine.
