The Living Legacy Program was the idea of Past Sovereign Grand Master Wilson D. Berkey, who in 1989 noticed many dead trees in the jurisdictions that he was visiting which aroused his concern for global tree loss. He commissioned this worthy project as “The Living Legacy Program” of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His untimely passing in March 1990 caused the program to become his own “Living Memorial” for his untiring work for Odd Fellowship!
The branches of the IOOF have planted over 8 million trees since the program’s inception. This is our gift to future generations! So please join Odd Fellows and Rebekahs world wide in planting trees which will better the community in which we live while helping to beautify the world!
