Trees Forever honors Cedar Falls woman with Outstanding Youth Group Leader Award
Sue Green is recognized for outstanding work
IOWA CITY, Iowa (June 18, 2019) – Trees Forever recognizes Sue Green with the Outstanding Youth Group Leader Award. Jerry Green accepted the award on her behalf during the Iowa City Annual Celebration and Award Dinner on June 13 at the Celebration Farm (located at 4696 Robin Woods Lane NE, Iowa City).
Sue has a long history with Trees Forever, but her most recent work was organizing more than 500 junior high students this past fall to plant more than 100 trees along Lone Tree Road just north of Cedar Falls. Before her retirement Sue included trees and tree planting into her curriculum at Homes Junior High and was a well-known advocate of trees.
“Sue’s passion has created a ripple effect upon the next generation,” said Patty Reisinger, Trees Forever Field Coordinator.
Every year, Trees Forever recognizes outstanding volunteers, environmental stewards, partners and advocates at Trees Forever’s Annual Celebration and Awards Dinner.
“Every one of our volunteers and landowner has made a brighter, greener future for the next generation, but these awards recognize the most outstanding-those who truly exemplify the Trees Forever mission.” Trees Forever CEO and Found President Shannon Ramsay said.
The nonprofit engages an average of 7,000 volunteers every year and has more than 500 sites on farms and other lands to enhance water quality, pollinator and wildlife habitat.
