Company Brings Global U.N. Environment Initiative to Northern New Jersey, Planting Trees and Providing Free Environmental Education Activities

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Nov. 18, 2007 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reaffirming its commitment to sustainability and social responsibility, today Bayer employee-volunteers and Girl Scouts from troops in Washington Township and Parsippany rolled up their sleeves, grabbed their spades and planted 10 trees at Lake Rickabear, owned and operated by Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey, as the company announced that it has awarded a new $19,000 Making Science Make Sense(R) (MSMS) grant to the Girl Scouts and that it has joined the United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) Plant for the Planet: The Billion Tree Campaign.

The MSMS grant to the Girl Scouts will underwrite three 2008 "Super Science Fun Days," aimed at increasing girls' self-confidence in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. The special daylong workshops are designed to develop critical thinking skills through hands-on experiences, like creating a catapult or hovercraft, exploring the world of fiber optics and optical illusions, or studying their own DNA.

In addition, through its local MSMS program, Bayer is providing free environmental education CDs to the Girl Scouts. The CDs feature fun facts about trees and the environment, hands-on science activities and several MSMS audio series segments, like "Why do leaves change colors?" and "Why do pruned trees grow fuller?"

The tree planting and environmental education materials distribution also marks Bayer's local commitment to the company's global pledge to the United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) Plant for the Planet: The Billion Tree Campaign, which strives to combat climate change by encouraging individuals and organizations to plant at least one billion trees around the world by the end of 2007. Earlier this spring, Bayer AG in Germany pledged to help plant
