Outreach and Education
We put on workshops throughout the year and an annual conference. Topics have included: Leading in your Community; The Built Environment & Public Health; Tree Risk & Urban Forestry; Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, and more.
Our Invest From the Ground Up program is a public awareness program consisting of two parts:
1) Education and outreach to civically-minded Californians in order to encourage the care of trees and green spaces.
2) Large scale regional tree plantings across the state for carbon sequestering and air pollution reduction.
With a focus on building a strong coalition, we work with other statewide organizations such as the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture and California ReLeaf.
