IBAOcon’23 Charity

Wildfires raging across the country and the world’s rising temperatures have made new growth more important than ever.

Trees are air purifiers, water filters, air conditioners, carbon sinks, homes for wildlife. They sustain life. That’s why a percentage of every event registration will support Trees For Life as they help plant the right trees in the right places, inspiring, funding and supporting community-led tree-planting groups.
