macnider-campgroundCEDAR RAPIDS – Alliant Energy’s Iowa utility and Trees Forever announced they are awarding $8,290 to MacNider Campground playground area, Birch Drive & South Kentucky Ave, and the SE Waterworks Park in Mason City.

Alliant Energy provides funding for Branching Out, a nationally recognized program. It partners with Trees Forever and local community leaders to develop and implement public tree-planting projects. The program supports energy efficiency with strategic planting locations and designs. It also improves the quality of life, increases environmental awareness, and encourages volunteer involvement.

“We hope that by investing in tree planting and education, our customers will learn more about the energy efficiency and sustainability benefits trees offer,” said Tom Aller, President of Alliant Energy’s Iowa utility. “This is one of the ways we are working with our communities and customers to help create a more sustainable future.”

Alliant Energy provides grants of between $1,000 and $10,000 for community-based, tree-planting projects in communities it serves. These can be at parks, community gateways, cemeteries, nature trails, libraries, nursing homes, schools, and more. Trees Forever administers the Branching Out program and provides technical and planning support.
