Nancy MacKerrow is the founder and head of the Susie Forest program. She pays for ten trees a year that are planted in the Spokane area. Susie Forest was started by Nancy in memory of her daughter Susie Stephens. Susie was world traveler, social activist, avid biker, and impassioned environmentalist. Unfortunately Susie was hit by a bus and killed. In honor of her daughter Nancy began planting trees for her daughter. Since the first tree however she has planted trees for people, organizations and groups who she wishes to recognize. In this way the Susie Forest is growing and will continue to grow.
