Jessica Franzini, program director for the Camden Urban Airshed Reforestation Program, will lead an in-person discussion. The community-based street tree planting program began in Camden in 2002. Designed to improve air quality, manage storm water, and provide shade, the initiative has removed approximately 80,830 square feet of impervious surface in order to plant 5,052 trees along Camden streets. Prioritizing grassroots work, the program empowers residents to create positive changes in their own communities. Residents apply for and adopt trees, help to organize events, and assist with the planting of each tree.
