SAVE THE DATE! ACTrees Day 2014 is on November 4th in Charlotte, NC. Registration is now open!
ACTrees Day is the annual meeting of the Alliance for Community Trees national members network held one day each November in conjunction with the Partners in Community Forestry Conference. In 2014, the Partners Conference will be held November 5–6 in Charlotte, NC.
ACTrees Day is the premier opportunity to learn from and share with colleagues from across the country, including other ACTrees members, partners, and tree friends. Together, we’re building a national network of community tree organizations that are strong, knowledgeable, and moving toward shared goals for urban forests.
Restoring Communities: Trees for People, Wildlife, and Landscapes
Science and practice show that restoring nature to cities creates healthier habitats for people and wildlife, while also enhancing aesthetic beauty, environmental quality, social cohesion, and economic vitality. Using cross-sector partnerships and innovative programs, ACTrees member organizations are restoring trees and green infrastructure to urban areas — and reaping the benefits. Join us for ACTrees Day 2014 to learn how creative local organizations are embracing the concept of restoring nature to cities, racking up remarkable results for their communities and their organizations.
ACTrees members and Urban Forest Councils can apply for travel scholarships by contacting membersupport@ACTrees.org.
I think it really is the #1 conference in the year for what we do, and I always come back to work really energized and inspired.
