Trees Forever and partners are excited to offer a “Grow Your Community Tree Canopy Workshop” for members of tree boards, tree committees, parks & recreation departments/boards, master gardeners, TreeKeepers, the general public, and lovers of trees. Scheduled for Wednesday, December 22 at the Gaukel Park Shelter from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.; we will be unveiling our Top 10 ways to grow your community forest canopy. Topics include grant programs for communities, FEMA disaster declarations, benefits of trees, community roadside plans, and more.  This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the green infrastructure we so often take for granted and how we can make it more resilient for the future. This is a free event. For more information or questions contact Molly Walkner at 319-440-7756 or Brad Riphagen at 515-370-1291.
