Event Details

Urban forests are an important part of California's cities. With the myriad of co-benefits trees provide, urban forestry naturally fits as a solution to many different issues California's communities face. Through case studies, this workshop will give participants the resources and language they need to speak to potential partners in different sectors.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Explain how urban forestry can be integrated with existing or new infrastructure to create an improved approach to air, water, and public health issues
  • Identify potential funding sources that have not traditionally funded urban forestry projects
  • Combine efforts to reach shared interest groups in your area, i.e. utilities, AQMDs, school districts, health care providers
