Guided by a fundamental belief in the power of community partnership, LABT serves entire communities by planting trees, designing and implementing resource conservation projects, and improving school campuses, neighborhoods and business districts.
Through these projects LABT solicits community participation and provide educational workshops and vocational training to at-risk youth and young adults. Each year they plant more than 2,000 trees, remove 3 million square feet of graffiti, and help to improve our communities for current and future generations.
In the past 20 years, LABT has adopted over 140 public schools, hired 2,500 youth and completed 250 mural walls, transforming campuses and neighborhoods throughout the region. Through this work they have also provided environmental and arts mentoring to more than 35,000 school children, inspiring many of them with a conservation ethic and increased civic pride.
