2015 Timelines: TreePeople History

  • TreePeople joins the California Environmental Literacy Task Force, a statewide initiative that is dedicated to supporting environmental literacy for all students.
  • TreePeople helps lead, facilitate and guide the creation of the City of LA’s first ever Stormwater Capture Master Plan. TreePeople becomes a key partner on the team, along with LADWP and its engineering consultant, to guide the process through a two-year timeframe. TreePeople’s role helped to ensure the end result contained progressive projects and policies, included significant community engagement and support, and incorporated best practices TreePeople has provided from extensive research. The Plan determined how to supply up to 45% of our water locally.
