Greystone Hotels Celebrates Earth Hour 2015

As an environmentally-friendly hospitality management company, Greystone Hotels was delighted to be a part of Earth Hour 2015. Earth Hour is an environmental movement created by the World Wildlife Fund to promote climate change and is celebrated by individuals and organizations around the globe. To celebrate Earth Hour and our commitment to following eco-friendly hospitality practices, Greystone Hotels proudly donated $5,000.00 to the Arbor Day Foundation.

The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit conservation and education organization whose mission is "to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees." This donation will help the Arbor Day Foundation to plant thousands of trees in Au Sable State Forest and Lake Superior State Forest in Michigan. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has a goal of planting one million Jack pine trees to improve habitat for the endangered Kirtland's warbler. This songbird's breeding habitat is almost exclusively confined to young Jack pine stands in the area. Efforts by the Arbor Day Foundation's replanting partners have increased the number of singing males from less than 200 to more than 1,900, bringing the species back from the brink of extinction. We're delighted to have been able to contribute to the sustainability efforts of the Arbor Day Foundation as part of Earth Hour 2015.
