Taos’ Tree Board Returns Shade to a Downtown Park by Planting Native Trees

  • Local Champion: Taos Tree Board
  • Date Funded: April 28, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $2,300

Over the last few years, many trees in Taos’ Kit Carson Park have died or been cut down due to safety concerns. The loss of canopy means reduced shade at this popular downtown park. Volunteers on the city’s Tree Board along with Downtown Taos MainStreet wanted to rectify this problem by planting new trees in the park—and by giving Taos residents native tree seedlings that they could plant at home. LOR provided funding to support the planting of 10 new trees in Kit Carson park over Arbor Day, where Taoseños could also pick up seedlings for their homes.

This project is fiscally sponsored by Downtown Taos MainStreet.
