1997 Timelines: TreePeople History

Los Angeles County Public Works, as part of an outreach program to address environmental issues, partners with TreePeople to develop and implement an environmental education program primarily aimed at teens. TreePeople develops the Generation Earth program providing professional development training and personalized support to secondary school teachers and students, helping them to take an active role in solving environmental problems and understanding how their actions have a real impact through environmental, service-learning projects. TreePeople continues to this day to hold the Generation Earth contract.
