Citizen Forester Classes Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
This is part of a series of 4 classes designed to educate the citizens of our community on the proper planting, care and maintenance of trees. The classes are free to the public and are a prerequisite to become a volunteer educator at our plantings, but can be taken just for the learning experience, as well. The remaining classes will be: November 15, December 13, and January 17.


Date: October 18, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: 2700 M Street, 1st Floor Conference Room, Bakersfield, CA.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
