Blue Whales are the largest animals ever known to have lived on Earth. These amazing marine mammals rule the oceans at up to 100 feet long and about 200 tons (181 metric tons). They often spend summers feeding in polar waters and undertake lengthy migrations towards the Equator as winter arrives. Read more about this amazing creature here.

Arbor Day is Almost Here!

Arbor Day Window Poster 2016What is Arbor Day? Arbor Day is a day to celebrate, plant and care for trees. Arbor Day is Tree Musketeers’ largest annual event, with hundreds of volunteers participating.

When is Arbor Day? We will next celebrate Arbor Day on March 5, 2016.  In California, Arbor Week is observed in March. National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, but most states however plan it to coincide with optimal planting season. To know where your state celebrates Arbor Day, visit this interactive map.

The Endangered Adelie Penguins

AdeliepinguinThe Adelie Penguins are one the smallest and most commonly found penguin in the Antarctic. They are quite clumsy on land but are amazing swimmers that can dive down to 180m. Although they tend to catch their prey much closer to the surface, they are very playful in the water. They are usually found in colonies of hundreds. The Penguins are listed near threatened despite their increasing numbers, but the population could decline massively with climate change and other penguins coming in better adapted for the climate change.

The Endangered – Legless Lizard

You can learn more about them in this month’s The Endangered article and then come and volunteer with Tree Musketeers at the Habitat to help repopulate their native habitat!

Make a Difference Day 2015 was a success!

On October 24th, 2015 Tree Musketeers organized their 3rd Annual Make a Difference Day event. Make a Difference Day is the largest national day of community service. Here in El Segundo, Tree Musketeers likes to dedicate this time to tree care for our local trees in preparation for planting season! Tall and Small volunteers came out to care for our Trees to the Sea along Imperial Highway by participating in a clean-up competition. We collected over 280 bags of trash and invasive plants!
