Description

Online registration for this event is closed. Please register at the door. No lunch will be provided.

The 9th annual Urban Forest Symposium will explore the intersection of social justice and urban forestry. Attendees will hear from arborists and environmental stewardship organizations who are working to engage and serve diverse audiences. Urban forestry professionals and community organization leaders will discuss strategies to increase opportunities for communities of color and low-income communities to receive the benefits of urban forestry. Learn about tools you can use to apply an equity lens to your hiring, training, communications and engagement. Come to ask questions, to hear your colleagues’ stories of how their equity work looks and feels, and to develop a more informed perspective on the importance of equity within the field of urban forestry.
