Moon Tree Foundation kickoff party


One woman’s mission is to educate the public about our space program and the forest service. All of this is to honor her father, astronaut Roosa, who was aboard Apollo 14 in 1971.
While on his mission, Roosa took various tree seeds that were germinated and then planted around the United States during the bicentennial celebrations. Now Rosemary Roosa is following in her father’s footsteps, creating second generation moon trees with a goal of planting one moon tree in every country. “But, we are either planting trees or taking tree seeds. So, thus far, we have planted trees in Switzerland, Italy, and Paris. We’ve given a tree to the Russian Cosmonauts in Russia and seed to Prince Sultan in Saudi Arabia and we’re looking now to England and possibly Norway.”
Each country they travel to will be documented to educate youth and adults through the living legacy of the video and the moon trees. You can visit their website at for more information.
