Volunteer Event Schedule
Urban Forestry's Volunteer Program is on break until this fall. The fall schedule will be posted here in late summer. Signup sheets will be posted as an event draws near, and additional details about projects will be included on the signup.
What Should Volunteers Bring?
- Close-toed shoes
- Weather appropriate, comfortable clothing
- Sun protection and insect repellent
- Tools, if available (Urban Forestry will provide tools as well)
Urban Forestry will provide complimentary work gloves (bring them with you to future events!) and a limited number of tools.
Sometimes weather or other factors cause changes in event details. All event updates will be posted on the online signup and Urban Forestry's Facebook page, and notifications will be sent out to volunteers via the signups. Be sure to check there for any changes in plans or cancellations.
