TreeKeepers 201: Tree Planting for Leadership Certification (Saturday September 28th)
September 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Baltimore TreeKeepers is a city-wide tree stewardship program open to anyone interested in Baltimore’s trees. TreeKeepers promote healthy trees by educating residents and increasing their role in the care of the City’s trees. Through this training, citizens can become tree advocates and share the responsibility to plant and care for trees in their neighborhood and throughout the City.
TreeKeepers includes several levels and types of classes, ranging from educational presentations to hands-on training that teaches citizens to care for their trees and environment. Some of the hands-on training allows citizens to perform work on public trees that requires a permit; these classes will have a “test of competency” to certify citizens in best urban tree care practices. Certified tree planters and pruners will be encouraged to assist TreeBaltimore partners at spring and fall tree planting events.
THERE WILL BE A HANDS ON ELEMENT TO FOLLOW THE LECTURE PORTION, WEAR STURDY SHOES AND CLOTHING TO KEEP YOU COMFORTABLE OUTDOORS!
