Programs

We offer expertise, training, tools, and advice so that we may empower our community to plant, protect, and learn about trees.

Acorn Harvest

Every fall from late September through early December, we train volunteers to harvest thousands of acorns from native oaks that are planted directly in reforestation sites, grown in-house into oak seedlings, or packed up into kits for our free hands-on classroom curriculum. All seedlings are eventually planted by additional volunteers at our reforestation sites throughout the region.

Online Training Webinars

We are thrilled to now offer two training sessions as online webinars that can be viewed at your convenience. Please note that Acorn Harvesters must attend both training sessions to obtain a harvesting permit for the season. If you have questions or would like to participate, please email us to receive further instructions.
