What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Urban Sustainability - Water

TreePeople works at both the systemic and the community levels to make Los Angeles more sustainable.

LA currently imports nearly 90% of its water from distant sources, costing Angelenos $1 Billion each year, damaging the ecosystems of the water sources, and using tremendous energy on transport. Meanwhile, we allow all of our local rainwater to flow to the ocean through storm channels, picking up trash and toxic pollution along the way. It is a broken system.

TreePeople is leading and facilitating a Multi-Agency Collaborative of LA's primary public water agencies to integrate their systems to capture stormwater. In addition, TreePeople is guiding, training, and inspiring community members to capture rainwater at their homes, transform their thirsty yards to be drought-friendly, and to adopt wiser water behaviors.

California is now in Year 4 of an extreme drought. Year 4 is when trees' internal survival resources break down and we start seeing trees dying en masse.

Saving LA's tree canopy requires special tree care and deep watering to help trees withstand the drought.

In 2015-16, TreePeople is focusing its efforts on mobilizing volunteer tree corps to save the trees!

TreePeople's Forestry team works on city streets, on school playgrounds, and in the mountains surrounding LA to plant and care for trees, contribute to public food gardens, and restore natural and biodiverse habitats.

The ultimate goal is to make LA greener, help the region become more climate resilient, and show Angelenos how to care for their home.
