Delaware Tree Stewards Training

June 5th, 2023 - June 14th, 2023

Become a Delaware Tree Steward!

Delaware Tree Stewards is a new initiative from the Delaware Forest Service and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay developed to promote, enhance, and increase tree canopy coverage in our urban and suburban environments by training and supporting community volunteers in proper tree planting and tree care practices. This four-session online training day and program resources will equip Delaware Tree Stewards participants with skills to be able to work with neighbors, organizations, and local public agencies within their own communities to organize and lead tree planting projects, assess new potential tree planting sites, care for existing tree canopy and access a variety of technical and financial resources to bolster their endeavors.

WHEN: June 5th, 7th, 12th, and 14th from 7 PM to 8:30 PM

WHERE: Each training session will take place via Zoom
