What is Urban Wood Rescue?

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?

When urban trees are removed and taken to the landfill, it allows them to decompose and release carbon back into the atmosphere where it contributes to climate change. By salvaging and reusing the wood from these trees, it gives the tree a second life and reduces our carbon footprint.

Bear River Habitat Trail Workday

Saturday, July 21 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 during hot weather conditions and will involve hard work with tools, so they are not the best events for our youngest volunteers.
