Give back, make new friends, build your resume, leave a
lasting legacy, and have fun!
As part of our team of Planting Leaders,
you will engage and manage volunteers in tree planting and stewardship projects
at parks, schools, residential homes, and/or open space areas across the
Sacramento region in order to grow and protect the best urban forest in the nation.
Planting Leaders support at least one tree planting or care event per month during
planting season (October through May).
Planting Leaders support us by ensuring
that volunteers have the best experience possible and that volunteers’ work
follows tree planting and care best practices. By providing volunteers with
training, supervision, and encouragement along with staff and interns, they
also increase our capacity to plant and care for more trees across our
region. They are an integral part of the overall success of our events
and serve as ambassadors for the organizations in the community, thereby also
growing our volunteer team.
