The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance would like to thank our program sponsors for helping make these programs possible: ITC, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Lansing Board of Water and Light, Eaton Conservation District, and Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.
The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance is a coalition of organizations and agencies dedicated to the promotion and celebration of Arbor Day throughout Michigan. Our dedication comes from our belief in the importance of trees and their role in community health and well-being. Since 1993, MADA has provided educational programs and services to Michigan communities. The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance is a program of the Eaton Conservation District in Charlotte, MI and is made possible through support from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
