Public-Private Partnership Plants Seeds of the Future with 32,600 Trees

LIBERTY, March 11, 2017 - As part of an on-going effort to restore native habitat for wildlife and enhance recreation opportunities at Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge near Liberty, TX, NRG and The Conservation Fund joined with USFWS to plant more than 32,600 oak, sycamore and tupelo seedlings last month across 75 acres of Refuge lands.

Planting native trees here will help restore marginal pasture to a natural bottomland hardwood forest. Restoring forests can also help enhance habitat for fish and wildlife, clean the air we breathe, and filter water downstream.

This project was supported by positiveNRG, the philanthropic arm of NRG, though a grant to The Conservation Fund. In the 22 years since the Refuge was established, over 100,000 seedlings have been planted on various portions of the 30,000-acre refuge. If more funding becomes available, another 275 acres is ready for planting next season.
