The City of Seattle is looking for people to volunteer as tree ambassadors to help with protecting and growing our urban forest.
The Tree Ambassador program empowers residents to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. Tree Ambassadors will be trained in the basics of urban forestry, leadership and community organizing. Tree Ambassadors will work in teams of 2-3 people to develop neighborhood projects such as tree walks, invasive species removal workdays, and/or tree plantings.
Check it out here. Crown Hill Neighbors recently received a Department of Neighborhoods Small and Simple grant to develop a tree walk and study some of the benefits of the urban forest in Crown Hill. We hosted Arthur Lee Jacobson on a very well attended and received walk through a small portion of our survey area. If you attended our walk or are interested please consider volunteering.
