In celebration of California Clean Air Day, AEG's LA Kings employees planted trees in Lynwood, CA as part of team’s ongoing efforts to promote responsible use of natural resources and advance sustainable practices.

In partnership with Southern California Gas Company. TreePeople and One Tree Planted, 40 volunteers worked alongside team mascot, Bailey, to plant 15 trees in residential neighborhoods to enhance shade equity in the underserved areas.
