Bayer Awards Making Science Make Sense Grant to Girl Scouts
Date:11/18/2007

trees in Nairobi and Bayer Corporation in the United States pledged $100,000 from the Bayer Foundation to the National Arbor Day Foundation to help plant 100,000 trees in an effort to reforest America's national parks damaged by fire, drought, disease and disaster.

"Making Science Make Sense is about providing students with the kind of quality experiential science education that builds science literacy," said Eric First, Health of Global Technology and Innovation, Bayer Consumer Care. "With our new Girl Scout partnership locally and the Billion Tree Campaign globally, we at Bayer are able to help these girls make the connection between science literacy and climate, while reinforcing the notion that everyone has a responsibility when it comes to environmental protection -- from the largest companies like Bayer that are working to develop innovative and environmentally sound products and practices, to private citizens who can help by carpooling, shutting off light switches, and in this case, planting trees."

The impact of trees on climate is well documented. For example, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen, enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people. In addition, the net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to 10 room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.

"Trees are vital to a healthy community, and planting trees today not only helps us leave a legacy for future generations of Girl Scouts, but helps us meet our mission of making the world a better place by empowering today's Girl Scouts with the STEM knowledge and skills necessary to change it," said Mary-Ann Lewis, Outdoor Program Director for Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey. "For this, we are extremely grateful to Bayer and its strong support of our Super Science Fun Day."
