As a leader in one of our most important volunteer roles, you will help teach our volunteers how to plant trees and work together as a team. Not only is being a crew leader a great way to meet people and develop valuable leadership skills, but you get to learn how to plant trees the right way. You’ll also get to wear a Friends of Trees Vest at weekend plantings and receive the respect and admiration of the volunteers on your crew.
At our training event you will learn about proper planting techniques, safety protocols, and how to lead a team of volunteers on planting day. You will also receive a coveted Tree Team t-shirt and great food (a hallmark of all of our planting events) as well! During our planting season, we ask that each crew leader commit to guiding small groups of planters at a minimum of 4 Saturday morning plantings.
This year's training will held on Thursday, November 1st, 2018 from 6 to 8:30pm. Stay tuned for information regarding the selected training venue!
Thanks for your interest in being a leader for community tree-planting -- we look forward to working with you!
