Residents help prepare for Super Bowl
In about 90 days, Cowboy Stadium in North Texas will host Super Bowl XLV, attracting fans from across the country. Many people are worried about the endless traffic, cars and trucks polluting the areas. With an expected huge number of visitors to the city, many residents are worried about the impacts the game will have on their city. But there are some out there that will have the environment’s back.
Keep Denton Beautiful has begun a process to plant trees around the surrounding areas. 45 trees, subtly linked to Super Bowl XLV, are being planted in each of the 12 cities participating in an initiative to prepare for the onslaught of pig-skin fans.
Keep Denton Beautiful has been hard at work to prepare. In late October the group gave away one thousand trees for residents to plant, complete with mulch and training.
And they are doing it again! KDB will be hosting another tree give-away in December.
“Did you know that 100 trees remove 26 tons of carbon dioxide and 305 pounds of pollutants from our air each year?”
To participate in this December give-away, you must pre-register before picking up your tree. Be sure to keep checking the KDB site for the registration opening. Help the city prepare for the Big Game and join us and Keep Denton Beautiful.
As someone who has never helped plant trees, I’ll be there. What should I expect? Who out there has participated in boosting the environment? What should I expect. Leave your comments and responses in the comments section below.
