Heartland Tree Alliance

Heartland
Tree Alliance
builds stronger communities through healthy trees. HTA engages the community to plant trees in neighborhoods throughout the Kansas City region and educates people about all the important benefits of urban trees. Trees slow traffic speeds, filter air and water pollutants, and provide shade to cool the rising temperatures in the summer. Over time, trees help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. HTA engages through speaking engagements,
TreeKeepers and OrchardKeepers courses, and volunteer opportunities to plant and care for trees on
public lands.

Kansas
City WildLands
represents a coalition of 30 partner organizations who collaborate to conserve,
protect, and restore Kansas City’s biological heritage by involving citizens in
stewardship of public land. We coordinate volunteer workdays to remove invasive
plants from remnant natural communities across the region, as well as
re-introduce and nurture indigenous species. Our unique approach to conservation results in healthy wild areas and
citizens who appreciate and use these beautiful places. A dual goal of KCWL is the education of both citizens and Parks staff to develop an understanding and appreciation of the wild lands - imperative for the long-term conservation of these precious places. KCWL conducts an educational component at each restoration workday, as well as conducting a large variety of outreach and workshop events each year to educate the public about the importance and restoration of these natural communities that represent Kansas City’s biological heritage.
