EPRC Tree Walkabout Program
We are excited to announce we have a new Tree Program intern for this Spring.
Jose Camara-Lavadores will be implementing our Tree Walkabout events through June. The Tree Walkabout events will focus on education about the benefits of enhancing tree cover and adding shade and seating areas on our commercial streets. We invite our organizational partners and other community groups to help us host Tree Walkabout events. We are also seeking volunteers to help gather participant data on the walks and record the information and questions participants have about trees in our neighborhoods. Email Gayle, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
