Bring the kids for this screening of THE LORAX presented by Trees Matter with a post-screening Leaf Pressing activity for the kids! A portion of the proceeds will benefit Trees Matter.
A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
Trees Matter is a Phoenix-based 501©(3) environmental education nonprofit, whose mission is to inspire and promote an increased tree canopy in the Valley.
We see a need to provide important resources to the general public so they can properly choose trees, plant trees, care for trees, and of course advocate for trees. We hope to encourage a culture of tree advocates and stewards.
Trees offer many critical functions such as shade, pollution reduction, dust reduction, food, increased property value, carbon sequestration, increase in mental and physical health, and more. The Valley has an immediate need for an increased tree canopy; Trees Matter works to alleviate this need by educating the public on tree knowledge, and distributing desert-adapted shade trees to residents across the Valley.
