100 Trees for 100 Years

The Park Ridge Park District turns 100 years old in 2014 and to help celebrate, we want to plant at least 100 new trees in our parks.

As part of our efforts to support conservation, we are joined by the Park Ridge Friends for the Parks Foundation who will be partnering with us in this endeavor. The Park Ridge Friends of the Parks is a 501 c3 organization that supports the mission of the Park Ridge Park District and is the fundraising arm of the Park District. Your contribution to the “100 Trees for 100 Years” program is tax deductible according to the IRS laws applicable to the foundation.

Honor a friend, family member or organization as well as memorialize a loved one. Or, plant your own legacy for the next 100 years as residents did a century ago for all of us. 

In appreciation of your donation, you will be recognized with a leaf on our donor tree.
