Meaningful Mondays Episode 9 – SOS Trees

Episode 9 – Trees are so much more than something which is beautiful to look upon. Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife.

Welcome to Meaningful Mondays, the Community Foundation of Middlesex County’s (CFMC) podcast sharing stories of Good People Doing Great Things – Locally!

Cynthia Clegg, CFMC, is joined by Carolyn Lyle of SOS Trees in this week’s episode. Carolyn discusses what led her to starting the SOS Trees group, how they connected with CFMC, and the events and programs they are offering to help the Old Saybrook community learn about the importance of trees … and plant new trees.

We live in a wonderful community full of remarkable individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations working – together – to help make Middlesex County a great place to live, work, and play. Join us and start your Monday off in a meaningful way as we talk with Good People Doing Great Things.
