The Urban Wood Rescue program salvages urban trees that need to be removed due to disease, pests, or safety issues and mills the wood into usable lumber. Instead of sending these trees to the landfill, Urban Wood Rescue gives a second life to urban trees.

Why Use Urban Wood?

Bear River Habitat Trail Workday

Saturday, June 16 8:30A - 11:30A

Join us as we fight invasive weeds, care for young native plants, build things, and get ready to open the Bear River Habitat Trail to the public. We will meet on the third Saturday morning of the month all summer long to work on a variety of tasks that will help make this space beautiful and safe for the public. These events will occur in hot weather conditions and will involve hard work with tools so they are not the best events for our youngest volunteers.
