treecats 2022 flier

The Urban Forest Initiative is thrilled to be hosting TreeCATs (Collegiate/Citizen Arborist Trainings) again in the Spring 2022 semester. This 20-hour training provides foundational knowledge presented by regional experts on some of the many interesting topics related to urban and community forestry, including: urban greenspace planning and design, environmental equity in the built environment, climate change in the urban forest, and tree, insect, and disease identification.

The workshop will be held on the dates listed in the poster above via Zoom from 9 AM - 11:30 AM (EST). The remaining hours will be completed via a series of assignments between sessions.

We look forward to receiving your application!
