Lasting gifts

Green idea for dads and grads

Looking for an environmental-themed gift for dad or a grad?

Friends of Trees, for a $35 donation, will plant a young native tree at the Collins Sanctuary in Portland in their honor. Recipients get a card acknowledging the gift.

During June, the nonprofit also is offering to plant a grove of six treees for gifts of $75.

Nearly 3,000 native trees and shrubs have been planted in the Collins Sanctuary, operated by the Audubon Society, since 2010. For more information, call Emma Gray at 503-467-2531 or visit
