Our Mission

The Tree Hugger Project is an ongoing work of Environmental Art designed to help us re-discover our relationship with nature at a very personal and intimate level. Made from twigs, branches, sticks, vines and other natural materials, these playful sculptures remind us that we humans are still very much a part of our  natural surroundings.  They bring us back to childhood memories when climbing trees, and playing with friends outdoors was a part of our daily experience. Has anyone ever climbed a tree without hugging it?   Our Project offers an excellent opportunity to reach out to local communities;  demonstrating that standing up for the environment can be done in a fun and non-political way, and that contemporary art can be entertaining and make a difference in how we view our world.  We encourage broad participation by volunteers of all ages in making these sculptures.  The Tree Hugger Project can happen almost anywhere. It can be an event unto itself at your local park, school, or community garden, or they can be constructed in conjuction with just about any local community festival where people gather together.  We hope you enjoy looking through our site and hope that  you’ll be encouraged to join us sometime soon in our project.
