The Tree Ambassador program empowers residents to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. Tree Ambassadors will be trained in the basics of urban forestry, leadership and community organizing. Tree Ambassadors will work in teams of 2-3 people to develop neighborhood projects such as tree walks, invasive species removal workdays, and/or tree plantings.
Tree Ambassador is a project of the Green Seattle Partnership, a collaboration between the City of Seattle and Forterra. Program work is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program.
***The Tree Ambassador program is not currently accepting applications. The next application period will open in the spring of 2012.**
