It’s round two of our Tree Stewardship Workshop and the pruning season is coming to a close fast!
We’re inviting Buffalonians, community members, and neighbors to a free, public workshop led by Caesandra Seawell, Program Manager for Keep Western New York Beautiful (KWNYB), and trained staff from the University Heights Tool Library (UHTL), who will be offering on-tree demonstrations of proper pruning and maintenance techniques for keeping trees of all ages healthy and happy to grow for many generations to come.
This is a ‘Learn by Doing’ workshop where No Skills Are Required. We will train you!
Once trained, participants can attend other workshop sessions in different areas of the city to hone their skills or schedule their own stewardship events for maintaining their neighborhood tree canopy. By providing communities with access to the right tools and knowledge, together we can restore Buffalo back to the urban forest it was. We look forward to getting snippy with you on the 15th.
Tuesday, September 15th | 6pm-8pm @ The University Heights Tool Library (5 W. Northrup Pl.)
Saturday, September 26th | 10am-12pm @ The Foundry (298 Northampton St.)
