Disney Lending A Hand In Reforesting Lower Mississippi River
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- In an effort to reach a voluntary greenhouse gas reduction goal, Disney is helping pay for a reforestation project in the lower Mississippi River that will help plant trees on 2,000 acres in the next two years.
The Baton Rouge Advocate reported the program is using private funding from Disney along with U.S. Department of Agriculture conservation money to help volunteer landowners plant trees on their property.
That money will help pay for about 1,500 acres of the reforestation work. Additional funding is being collected to meet the 2,000-acre goal.
