The memorial organizer requested donations in honor of Charles Gordon

FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR

Charity donation.

Whether it was going for a walk at work for lunch, bird watching in his backyard, adventuring through the Boundary Water Canoe Area, flying into Canada for a fishing trip, or exploring the State and National forests that Minnesota has to offer, Chuck really enjoyed being outdoors and was very active in the support of nature preservation organizations. On behalf of Chuck, we would like to raise funds to make a donation to the Future Forests Fund, ran by the Minnesota DNR-Forestry Division. Why donate? A contribution, of any amount, to The Future Forest Fund is a beautiful way to honor someone who loved the outdoors, celebrate a special event, or demonstrate a commitment to Minnesota's environment. That's because your donation directly supports the planting of trees in Minnesota. Your donation allows us to purchase seedlings, fund plantings, and protect seedlings from harm until they are six-to-eight feet tall and free to grow on their own. Forest facts Our Minnesota State Forests aren't just beautiful to look at, they play a critical role in our way of life. For example: - One acre of trees, which is about the size of a football field, produces enough oxygen each year for 18 people. - Each year, an acre of trees can remove roughly the same amount of carbon emitted by two cars. - On a hot day, a tree in full leaf can give off 900 gallons (7,500 pounds) of water vapor into the air, which is equivalent to cooling as much air as six room-size air conditioners.
