Casey Trees: What attracted you to Casey Trees?
Emily and Stacy Cloyd: Emily is a botanist who worked as a Girl Scout camp naturalist during much of college and still loves identifying trees as she walks through the woods and around the city. In 2004, while at a professional society conference, she heard a talk about disparities in tree cover in various neighborhoods in DC measured by students at Howard University. When she moved to DC a few years later and Stacy told her about Casey Trees mission, she thought back to that talk and knew that she wanted to support Casey Trees important work in the city.
