Tree Steward Training; July 9th and 16th
Tree Steward Training
School 84, Center for Inquiry
July 9th and 16th
The tree steward training of the DNR is a fabulous two day program that teaches a firm foundation about trees and tree advocacy. Among other topics are choosing the right tree for the right place, and the most up-to-date planting and tree care techniques, threats to trees, and the benefits of the urban forest. It is a mix of classroom and in the field, hands-on training. It is appropriate for gardeners, tree board members, students and most especially for people interested in advocacy for their neighborhood environment. Instructors are city foresters, certified arborists, Purdue Extension agents and other natural resource professional. This program is offered by the DNR at various times throughout the state, but seldom in Indianapolis. Note: It would also be a wonderful opportunity for young adults to become involved and get some work experience with the 15 hours (optional) volunteer experience required for certification. Under 18 would require parental approval. To view the curriculum go to http://www.in.gov/forestry/2854.htm
