We are looking for volunteers to join our Trees Winnipeg family. If you are passionate about the urban forest and would enjoy the company of liked minded individuals, this could be the perfect fit for you! We are looking for volunteers for the following roles:

1) Arbor Day Committee

2) Arbor Day Event (June 1, 2019)

3) Winnipeg’s Forest Watch

 

  • Arbor Day Committee: Help us plan Arbor Day! Arbor Day is a celebration for the trees in our communities and the arborists who care for them. Our Arbor Day planning committee meets approximately once a month to discuss, plan, and execute everything that happens behind the scenes at Arbor Day.

 

  • Arbor Day Event Volunteer: Have a busy schedule but still want to be involved in  Arbor day? Why not join us at Arbor day as an event volunteer help us make it an unforgettable day.

 

  • Forest Watch Program: The Winnipeg Forest Watch Program is our campaign to monitor and raise awareness of invasive species, like emerald ash borer (EAB). Volunteers will complete two neighbourhood surveys during the summer months. The first survey will include looking for trees that are showing signs of stress or decline. The second survey will be focused on locating trees that could be candidates for the City of Winnipeg’s ash injection program.
