Give a tree – give life

This year, give a gift that helps protect Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, one of the world’s foremost environmental jewels. Your $30 donation will plant a tree in the Osa Arboretum, in your name or as a gift – thus conserving a rare species under threat, providing oxygen, replacing lost biodiversity and supporting local communities’ efforts to safeguard their children’s natural heritage.

Choose your tree and donate today.

Your gift also supports the Osa Arboretum in its mission to support local stakeholders in their productive and sustainable use of forests and their contribution to reducing conservation threats. We are proud to co-sponsor our 2016 Holiday Campaign with Playa Karé, whose donation of native species of Osa in honor of the Costa Rica USA Foundation's 20th anniversary inspired this effort, and with the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC).
