Description

As we face increasingly complex problems, we often seek out partners with common values to leverage strengths and make a greater impact. Whether you are working to restore and maintain a healthy urban forest, preserve and grow public green space, increase equitable access to the urban forest, or improve public health outcomes, it can often feel like there’s too much work to be done and not enough time or money. At the 10th Urban Forest Symposium,
presenters from nonprofits, government, private business and educational institutions will explain:

  • Different models for building effective partnerships
  • How partnering has worked for both small and large organizations to address some of our most pressing urban forestry challenges
  • Ways you can implement these ideas in your workplace/organization to be more successful in grant applications and make a greater positive impact in your community.

Complimentary reception to follow, 4-6pm
