Science Care and the Arbor Day Foundation, a nonprofit conservation group, have launched a special partnership. Through the Science Care Memory in Nature ™ program, a tree is planted in honor of every donor. The donor’s family will receive a certificate commemorating the tree planting upon the one-year anniversary of donation.
Trees are planted in national forests throughout the country, helping to preserve public land and provide food and habitat for wildlife. We at Science Care are proud to be able to help the earth and humanity heal through life-affirming action. The Memory In Nature program is just a small way that we can honor the gift of body donation and leave the world a better place for future generations.
In 2016, Science Care is working with the Arbor Day Foundation to support replanting in the Etoniah Creek State Forest in North Central Florida. Reforestation of degraded sandhill sites on the Etoniah Creek State Forest is critical and has been an ongoing project since the late 1990’s when the State of Florida acquired this property as a state forest. Restoring longleaf pine to this site will allow for Wild turkey, white-tailed deer, quail, gray and fox squirrels, and other species endemic to the sandhill natural community type to flourish.
