This popular class is back to teach the essentials of caring for a very precious resource – TREES! Urban Forest Stewards will deepen their connection to the roots of their community by learning how to care for and grow the urban forest. Graduates will strengthen the community voice for urban forestry: they may join or start a new Adopt-A-Park group, increase their advocacy for the urban forest resource, become team leads on planting and maintenance days, or simply spread the word about proper tree care around their neighborhood.
This 4 part class is taught by certified arborists, foresters, landscape professionals, and community leaders to teach you all about trees. Topics include: tree selection, placement and planting; tree care and pruning for both young and mature trees; tree identification; and how to work with partners to implement successful tree planting, maintenance and education events in your neighborhood.
Classes held first Saturday of the month, for four months at the Zilker Botanical Garden:
Garden Center Building, 2220 Barton Springs Road, Austin.
Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm on November 5, December 3, January 7, and February 4
