Upcoming Events

COVID 19 UPDATE: A new training class will hopefully be scheduled for the fall.  At this time during the Covid 19 outbreak, Tree Stewards are not sponsoring volunteer events as the Surgeon General desires all to stay at home and self isolate.  Fortunately, the beautiful trees can still be admired from windows and walks.

Ongoing Activities

Events are open to all unless otherwise noted — come out and volunteer with Tree Stewards or come to a public event to learn how to care for trees.

Every weekend and some Tuesdays area-wide: Save Trees and Native Habitat
Join Master Naturalists to remove invasive plants in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, and Fairfax County. Visit this link for details and locations. Contact the site leader if you plan to participate. Some hours change seasonally.

Select Saturdays, May-September: Arlington Courthouse Tree Table
Tree Stewards staff an information table at the Arlington Courthouse Farmer’s Market once each month in the summer. This project is a fun way to earn volunteer hours while helping to educate the public and expand your own knowledge. New graduates most welcome — we will schedule you with an experienced Tree Steward. 2020 table dates are not yet available. Contact Carol Weldon at cweldon2@verizon.net if you are intersted in getting involved.

Every Fall and Spring: Casey Trees in DC
Casey Trees plants thousands of trees across the District of Columbia with help from volunteers. Learn their technique and help reach DC’s goal of 40 percent tree canopy by 2032. Register early: Tree planting opportunities fill very quickly, often the same day they’re announced. Members (donors) get first dibs. Breakfast and lunch are provided.
