$25 for volunteers, $65 for non-volunteers, prerequisite for all other workshops.
Trees 101 teaches the important basics from which other workshops will draw. Hence, you must attend this workshop before all other workshops. We will cover tree biology and the environmental factors that impact tree growth as well as discuss the benefits of trees and common myths. You will also learn what it means to be a Community Forester or a Tree Steward. You'll find out what the program entails and about the various activities that require highly-skilled volunteers and team leaders.
To become a Community Forester, you must complete all five workshops and commit to 10 hours/yr of volunteering, course descriptions below.
Those wishing to receive training with no volunteer commitment may also enroll. You will receive a badge in Urban Forestry.
Those who do not attend the full workshop series receive the title "Tree Steward" and are able to volunteer in support roles.
