Come enjoy the great outdoors inventorying the Arboretum Recreation Center with Casey Trees! Want to put your tree skills to the test before winter sets in? Join Casey Trees at the Arboretum Recreation Center to inventory the cities park trees. Many of these trees have never been surveyed for their health, size or species and we need your help! Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques participants will split into groups and begin measuring trees. We will be documenting tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown, overall health and more. Who Should Attend? Open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us. If you have participated in our Trees 101 or Trees 201 class, this will be a great way to put your knowledge into action! Come Prepared We will plan to conduct the inventory rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack. Getting There We suggest biking or car-pooling to this event as public transportation isn’t as readily accessible but there are a few bus stations in proximity including B2 and S41. Where to Meet We will meet in-front of the Recreation center at the end of Rand Place NW. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date. Meals Light refreshments will be provided.
