Urban and Community Forestry Upcoming Activities

DEC's Urban and Community Forestry Program (UCF) is moving toward electronic communication of workshops, conferences and grant opportunities, and away from postal mailings as much as possible. We encourage you to sign up for emails through DEC Delivers. In addition to urban forestry topics, you will receive information on forests, plants and land conservation across the state. We anticipate primarily email-only through DEC Delivers by 2021.

If you're planning on attending a UCF Grant information session please let us know by signing up here (leaves DEC website).

If you can't make the workshop, or would like to view the slides in advance, download a copy of the presentation that will be given at the workshops here (PDF).
