Goal: The League of Women Voters of Snohomish County will partner with the Delta Neighborhood Association, the City of Everett, and Forterra to enhance tree canopy in the Delta Neighborhood, Everett, WA.
This project provides an opportunity to enhance urban tree canopy within a vulnerable population and to educate the public about its role in environmental stewardship. According to American Forests' Tree Equity Score, the Delta Neighborhood scored 58% out of 100%. It shows 10% tree canopy cover, 32% people of color, and 53% people in poverty. LWVSC will join with the Delta Neighborhood Assoc. to meet with Everett City Public Works and Parks Dept. to coordinate plans. We will support the Delta Neighborhood with grant writing, developing educational media and printed materials, and canvassing the neighborhood to educate and recruit homeowners to adopt a tree on their property.
