Help ensure the health and vitality of Denver's trees... Become a Community Forester!
The Park People and Denver Parks & Recreation have teamed up to present the Community Forester program and empower individuals to lead tree planting and care activities within the community.
Once trained, Community Foresters can lead and participate in tree planting and care projects in their neighborhoods as well as activities for The Park People, the Denver Forestry Office, and the Be A Smart Ash campaign. This is a great opportunity to support our environment, urban greening, community health, and quality of life in Denver.
Due to the risks and restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been forced to cancel the 2020 training workshops. We hope to reschedule for a time later this year if consistent with public health guidance. We will communicate directly with 2020 workshop registrants.
