The Penny Pines program provides a helping hand by playing a vital role in renewing the national forests in our State. It’s a conservation program in which everyone can participate. Our garden club participates in this meaningful conservation project. Member contributions are collected at monthly meetings. The minimum donation is $68 to a Penny Pines Plantation. The Treasurer will record and deposit all funds collected. Once our $68 goal has been met, the Treasurer will submit payment to the USDA Forest Service for the Tahoe National Forest.
