MADA has organized the State Arbor Day Celebration since 1995, inviting 1,000 students annually from Mid-Michigan, typically Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Ionia, Shiawassee, and Jackson counties, to Lansing in order to learn about trees and other natural resources. The MADA State Committee Board is made up of representatives from Eaton Conservation District, DNR Urban Forestry, Arboriculture Society of Michigan, City of Lansing Forestry Division, Consumers Energy, and MSU Federal Credit Union. The Committee meets once a month for several months leading up to the State Arbor Day Celebration.
MADA has also developed several programs to educate and engage our communities throughout the year. We serve as a resource for information, provide educational materials, and tree planting guidance for residents across Michigan.
One of these programs is the Tree Planting Grant program, which is solely funded by our sponsors. Local units of government, municipalities, neighborhood associations, libraries, churches, schools, tribal organizations and non-profits are eligible to apply. This year alone we will be helping six communities plant trees thanks to our sponsors.
The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance relies heavily on sponsorship's, grants and partnerships to be able to hold the annual State Arbor Day Celebration at Potter Park Zoo and to run our statewide Tree Planting Grant Program. In 2020, we will be holding a special Arbor Fest event for the general public to commemorate our 25th year of holding the State Arbor Day Celebration at Potter Park Zoo. We ask that you please consider sponsoring one or more of our programs. Let us help you get the word out about your sponsorship of our program(s) and how it has made a positive difference in the lives of Michigan residents.
