Des Moines Needs Tree Stewards
We are committed to re-building our urban canopy via education and tree planting and maintenance events. An ongoing Des Moines Tree Inventory outlines a compelling need to act NOW. Tree Des Moines has already acquired funding for new trees. Now we need committed and trained Tree Stewards to work with neighbors to select, plant and maintain them!
Sign up for our next tree steward class: Money Really Grows on Trees.
This six-week course is held on Thursday evenings at Roosevelt High School starting October 12 - November 16, 2017. You will experience a challenging hands-on curriculum taught by forestry professors and industry professionals. Money Really Grows on Trees is offered by Des Moines Public Schools Community Education. To register, click on the link above or call 515-242-8521. Class size will be limited to maximize student learning.
