(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

Commissioner Esteban Bovo, Jr. invites residents to join him on Thursday, June 27th, 2013 at 10:00am to plant trees together for the “Million TREES Miami” campaign.  The event will take place at the Country Club of Miami South Park located on 6881 Northwest 179th Street. 

Million TREES Miami Campaign is a Community-wide effort to plant 1 million trees by 2020 in order to achieve a 30% tree canopy cover for Miami-Dade County.  The campaign was developed by the Miami-Dade Community Image Advisory Board and was born of the idea that a healthy and sustainable urban forest provides significant social, economic, and environmental benefits that fosters a high quality, livable, vibrant, and beautiful community.
