Members may earn volunteer hours by attending our Tree Steward Membership Meetings.   At each membership meeting, we host a continuing education speaker presenting a variety of tree-related topics.
Our membership meetings historically have been held in person at Ivy Creek, but due to the COVID-19 precautions we will continue  to offer virtual meetings through Zoom until we can meet again.
