Education is a cornerstone of TreesCharlotte’s mission, but our data shows that less than 10% of Charlotteans are familiar with our organization. With a rapidly developing city, we need to ensure that residents are given the inspiration they need to advocate for tree planting and preservation in their communities. We are in search of passionate, motivated individuals to help TreesCharlotte spread awareness. TreeAmbassadors are specially trained volunteers who represent TreesCharlotte at outreach events, educational opportunities, and more!
The Spring Training will focus on the below:
- TreeAmbassador Handbook Competition (Friendly game based on the contents of the handbook)
- State of the Canopy Presentation
- School/Camp Activities
- Tabling at Events
- Treesilience (New initiative in under canopied and underserved neighborhoods)
If this sounds like you and you want to volunteer in this capacity please register for our TreeAmbassador Training on Wednesday, May 10th from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. The training will occur at the City's Landscape Management Building on 701 Tuckaseegee Road. For more information or any questions please email Joi Mayo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please review the TreeAmbassador's Handbook prior to the meeting. We will host a friendly competition based on the contents.
