No Winter Blues Here—Only Winter Greens

Did you know that even in the dead of winter, there is still a lot going on with the urban forest of D.C.? Come to one of Casey Trees’ three upcoming courses to learn about winter characteristics, year-round advocacy, or the pesky bugs that continue to threaten our trees. Advance registration is required and space is limited—sign up today so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!

Trees 201 – There’s still time to sign up for this weekend’s workshop! Come learn some of the ins and outs of our city’s trees, including their year-round characteristics and how they complement their neighborhoods. This class is geared toward Citizen Foresters and Project Organizers, but anyone interested in learning about the right tree in the right space is welcome.
Saturday, January 28, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Casey Trees headquarters.

Stand Up for Trees – Since trees can’t stand up for themselves, we will teach you how to successfully advocate for trees in your community. We will show you the tools the District provides, and community members will be there to share their stories and advice. Stand Up for Trees is a Citizen Forester-qualifying course.
Saturday, February 4, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Casey Trees headquarters.

What’s Bugging D.C. – The critters in D.C. aren’t limited to adorable squirrels and song birds, we also have our share of major pests that threaten our urban forest. Come learn what is being done to mitigate these threats and how you as a concerned neighbor can help.
Wednesday, February 8, 6 – 9 p.m. at Casey Trees Headquarters.
