We will open with a brief talk about what you can do to help preserve the urban forest by the City’s Urban Forest Manager, Marty Frye. After that, community members with active educational, promotional, or service projects working towards urban forest health will have the opportunity to speak for 2-3 minutes to introduce themselves and their work and to let others know how they can get involved. Marty will then lead a tree walk from the Public Works building over to Takoma-Piney Branch Park, discussing the identification, ecology, and fun-facts of selected tree species along the way.
