In June, BayInfotech supported BAPS Charities' Walk Green Event in San Jose, assisting the Nature Conservatory's Plant a Billion Trees movement. The event was designed to raise funds to "support The Nature Conservancy's efforts to plant and restore over 1.6 million acres of land by planting one billion trees by 2025."
The event, which took place at Ed R. Levin County Park in Milpitas, CA, raised over $20,538.00 through fundraisers and corporate sponsors, lending valuable support to worldwide ecological conservation movements and educating youth about environmental concerns.
Through their participation, BayInfotech joined "23,000 walkers in over 70 cities in North America and help support the planting of 130,000 trees in 2018." With their involvement, they joined the thousands of other volunteers who believe that a healthy planet is critical to building healthy communities where both nature and individuals can thrive.
The Nature Conservatory is "the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people." Through their efforts, they have protected more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide, and they seek to expand their efforts with the support and involvement of local groups.
In addition to supporting The Nature Conservatory, the Walk Green event also raised funds for the Milpitas Unified School District, offering financial contributions to schools, special education institutes, and adult education programs in the local Bay Area city.
