Our 2018-2019 training sessions will begin in October. This is a change from past years, when training started in February. Here are details.
We hope you will join us and help us make a difference in the health of our urban canopy.
The Volunteer Training Program is designed to prepare participants for volunteer service to the community. Through classroom training and hands-on practice, Tree Stewards learn the basics of tree biology and physiology, tree identification, planting and maintenance techniques, construction impacts on trees, pruning and selecting the right tree for the right spot.
What are Volunteer Service Hours?
Each trainee makes a commitment to improving and protecting their community forest through 30 hours of volunteer service during the next year. Opportunities for volunteering are provided.
What does it cost? The $120 fee pays for all course material and facility expenses. If you need a scholarship to attend, tell us what you will be able to pay and what your plans are for volunteer work. No one willing to volunteer is turned away for lack of funds.
