For more than 25 years, Timberland employees, business partners, friends and family members have donated their time to protecting and restoring outdoor spaces -- city parks, community gardens and green spaces that people explore every day, including a recent renewal of Little Green Acres Park in South Los Angeles.

Timberland employees worldwide have served over one million hours to date. Meet four who share their thoughts on what service means to them. Be a part of the change - join Timberland to be a hero for nature.
