Urban Forestry Certificate Program
Earn a Certificate in Urban Forestry this spring!
In partnership with the Arizona State Forestry Division, the Garden District Neighborhood Association, the City of Tucson and Trees for Tucson, the Gardens is pleased to offer this nine-week program to engage community members in caring for Tucson’s urban forest.
The program’s purpose is to create a core group of citizens versed in the basic science of urban forestry and its practical aspects. Students will learn about the importance of our urban forest, tree biology and identification, tree care, and community engagement from true experts in each field. They’ll get their hands dirty learning how to prune, gathering information for tree inventories and assisting with tree-planting and maintenance events. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive our Certificate in Urban Forestry and will be asked to use their newfound knowledge and experience in leading future community greening efforts.
The next session runs Feb. 26 to Apr. 23, 2013. Classes meet Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and some Saturdays. The cost is $195 for member of Tucson Botanical Gardens, $220 for non-members.
