The Future Takes Root One Tree at a Time.
In 2007, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved a goal for the urban canopy to extend across 45% of the county by 2037. The urban tree canopy provides many economic and environmental benefits, including conserving energy, providing wildlife habitat, improving air and water quality, lowering outdoor temperatures, and boosting property values. Additionally, the trees add beauty to neighborhoods and shopping areas as well as along streets. To achieve this goal more than 2 million trees will need to be planted. The Fairfax County Restoration Project (FCRP) developed Reforest Fairfax to help meet the Board's Urban Canopy goals.
You can help with your donation to Reforest Fairfax – a $35 gift certificate pays for five native tree seedlings that will be planted in Fairfax County.
With Mother's Day fast approaching, a gift certificate would be the perfect choice for the hard-to-buy-for mom!
Lockheed Martin is involved in a wide range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs, including support for the launch and expansion of Robotics Curriculum and Clubs throughout the 4-H Network. Lockheed Martin's support recently allowed for a Northern Virginia 4-H Robotics training opportunity for youth from the Herndon and Cedar Ridge Computer Learning Centers that included a donation of $2,000 worth of robotics equipment, including 5 Lego Mindstorm robotics kits, to each site. As part of its Engineers in the Classroom STEM Education Initiative, Lockheed Martin engineers volunteer in schools and with extracurricular programs as mentors and career role models to help grow the next generation of engineers and technologists.
