Fort Washington, PA - Cosmo Cares is excited to launch a tree planting project in partnership with the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown Pa. The tree planting is timed on Earth Day an annual celebration honoring the achievements of the environmental movement and raising awareness of the importance of long-term ecological sustainability. Planting trees helps the environment in many ways including: producing oxygen, reducing stress, building homes for wildlife, quieting noise pollution, creating beauty, cooling the environment and many others.
We are so grateful to the Cosmo Cares Foundation for their support of our tree planting initiative. Thanks to their generosity, the zoo will be planting roughly two dozen trees both in and around animal enclosures. Not only will the plantings serve to further beautify the zoo, the tree species selected will provide new areas of shade, scent enrichment for our animals, and in the case of our giraffes, branches and leaves to eat, stated Executive Director & CEO of Elmwood Park Zoo, Al Zone.
Natalie, Cosmo and I are so excited to celebrate Earth Day by doing our part to protect the environment and wildlife. It was especially gratifying to get our hands dirty while planting, stated program Director and Zoo Board member Morgan DeNicola.
