Urban Forestry Certificate Program
Earn a Certificate in Urban Forestry this spring!
This nine-week program, created in partnership with the City of Tucson, Trees for Tucson, and members of the Garden District Neighborhood, is designed to educate and engage community members in caring for Tucson’s urban forest. Students will learn about the importance of the urban forest, tree biology, tree care, pruning, tree inventories, and community engagement from experts in each field. Hands-on sessions will allow participants to literally get their hands dirty by working in our community to plant, maintain, and inventory trees, and students will graduate prepared to use their new-found knowledge and experience in leading and supporting community greening efforts. Classes meet Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and most Saturdays.
Tentative Dates: Feb. 18 to Apr. 15, 2014
Program Fee: $195 for members of Tucson Botanical Gardens and $220 for non-members. Limited scholarships may be available.
Development of this program was supported by the Arizona State Forestry Division and the U.S. Forest Service. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
