Michigan Arbor Day Alliance Honors Consumers Energy for Longtime Support


On Thursday, September 26, MADA’s Program Coordinator and ECD’s Executive Director went to Consumers Energy in Jackson to honor and thank employees for their longtime support of MADA’s programs. They were presented with a picture and plaque of the 2019 Arbor Day Celebration. Without Consumers support, we would not be able to hold our Annual State Arbor Day Celebration or provide communities across the state with trees to beautify their towns/cities. Kay Lancour (left), a Consumers Energy employee, has been on MADA’s board for many years and has played a pivotal role in the success of our Annual Arbor Day Celebration at Potter Park Zoo. We are thankful for her continuous support over the years and are lucky to have her on our planning committee.

This year, MADA was able to award six Tree Planting Grants, which will result in getting 73 trees rooted in communities across the state. Hannah Reynolds, the Arbor Day Coordinator stated, “The MADA Tree Planting Grant program is funded solely on donations from our sponsors. Without support from Consumers Energy and our other sponsors, MADA’s programs would not be possible.” Consumers Energy support for our programs shows their dedication to promoting environmental education and stewardship. We look forward to continue to educate people across the state about the importance of trees and make a positive difference in the lives of Michigan residents.
