STEP Citizen Scientist

Help the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento collect valuable data on our remaining public elm trees! Our Save the Elms Program's (STEP) volunteer Citizen Scientists will monitor local elm trees for symptoms of the problematic Dutch elm disease (DED), a fungal disease that has taken the lives of thousands of Sac elms since the 1990's, over the summer using a monitoring application.
