Greenprint Summit Information and Agenda

August 11, 2010

For over five years, 6 counties and 22 cities have supported the Greenprint initiative to build the best regional urban forest and plant 5 million trees by 2025. Please join us on September 23, 2010 and learn how you can get involved.  Click here to register.

Who Should Attend:

Community members, business owners, service and faith-based groups, youth groups, elected officials and local government staff -- anyone who is interested in improving the quality of life for your community by expanding the leafy tree canopy in neighborhoods, business districts, schools, and parks.

At the Summit you will partner with members of your community to begin planning what your community will look like with more trees and how to identify who will help make your community cleaner, cooler and more comfortable. We will walk you through a step-by-step process to make your community healthier and more livable with trees.
