Canopy Volunteers       


I wanted to let you know about some of the upcoming Canopy plantings this fall, particularly our Planting Leader Training on October 8th. It is going to be a busy season.  Please let me know if you can volunteer with us. See below for dates and times. It would be great to see you at the next planting!

Trees planted by Canopy have an exceptional rate of establishment and survival as a result of our rigorous planting protocols.  Come learn our technique and share your planting insights.   


This training will double as the preparation for a large planting event one-week later at the same site: October 15, 2011, at EPAPA school.
