Description

Community Forestry 101

Saturday, August 25

Time: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Location: 3921 East Bayshore Rd., Palo Alto


In California, 80% of the population live in cities, making urban forests a vital part of daily life. What exactly is an urban forest and what does it do for us? What is happening with trees at the regional and local scale, and what is our role in stewarding this valuable environmental resource?


Community Forestry 101 is an introductory workshop of Canopy’s new Community Forestry School, a five-month series that dives into the fundamentals of urban forestry and the ways you can bring the benefits of trees to your local community. Each workshop includes an in-depth session on key topics in urban forestry and concludes with optional trainings to equip you with skills to work with us side-by-side to remedy local inequities in tree canopy cover and access to urban nature.


Following workshops include:

  • Engaging Youth in the Urban Forest | September 22
  • Native Oaks & Citizen Science | October 6
  • Tree Planting Basics | November 3
  • Celebration for Community Foresters | December 8


This workshop is open to teens and adults. No prior experience necessary.
