Adventure Aquarium volunteers help plant trees in the city of Camden

“He that plants trees loves others beside himself.” – Thomas Fuller

Making the earth greener, one tree at a time! This past week, a team of Adventure Aquarium ‘Fins for the Future’ volunteers helped plant trees in the city of Camden. Working side by side with community and corporate volunteers and students, the Fins for the Future team – comprised of Adventure Aquarium employees – helped 35 lovely trees take root near the intersection of North 32nd & Hayes Street. The tree planting is part of a city-wide effort organized by the New Jersey Tree Foundation.

The Program is dedicated to planting trees in New Jersey’s most under-served neighborhoods that help beautify the city, improve air quality, manage storm water, and provide shade. Tree planting is just one of Fins for the Future’s environmental initiatives. As Adventure Aquarium’s conservation program, Fins for the Future is committed to providing real opportunities for people to get involved and make positive changes to the environment.
