Plant Something BC
Imagine a World Without Trees and Plants.
Since BC is home to 3000 native plant species, its hard to image a world without trees or plants. Yet people are placing long-lasting and damaging stress on our ecosystems everyday. This stress is leading to climate change and decreasing green spaces issues that we are facing today. Now it is more important than ever to Plant Something BC!
