FVTC works with Menominee Nation to reforest parts of Wisconsin
As part of a continuing celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day, the Menominee Nation is giving away thousands of trees to school communities across Wisconsin to help reforest parts of the state.
Earth Day started in Wisconsin more than 50 years ago under former Gov. Gaylord Nelson, and Menominee officials are looking to lead in the cause of revitalizing Mother Earth for the next 50 years.
“As we enter into the next 50 years, it was our passion as a tribe that we would enter the next 50 years a whole different way,” said Nels Huse, marketing specialist with Menominee Tribal Enterprises.
