Volunteer Opportunities for All


Save The Elms Program (STEP) Citizen Scientist Training


Tuesday, May 31 6:00P - 7:30P

Help the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento monitoring our remaining public elm trees for the problematic Dutch elm disease (DED). This training event will give you the tools and skills necessary to identify and monitor elms for DED symptoms. This is a training opportunity; monitoring elm trees is a volunteer activity that can be done on your own schedule! We ask that STEP Citizen Scientists commit to monitor selected elm trees three times between May and October.


Bear River Habitat Trail


Saturday, June 11 8:00A - 11:30A

Join the Sacramento Tree Foundation for a workday at our Bear River Habitat Trail site in Yuba County. We’ll be doing general site care and clean-up including irrigation system maintenance, mulching, and weeding. This site will provide an important link for wildlife in the area. Help us care for the young trees, shrubs, and grasses that we planted this winter – these little guys need your help!


Children ages 6 - 14 are welcome to participate, but must be accompanied by an adult.

Youth ages 15 - 17 can attend unsupervised, but are required to provide a signed volunteer release form (.pdf).
