Urban and Community Forestry Upcoming Activities

DEC's Urban and Community Forestry Program (UCF) is changing how we promote workshops, conferences and grant opportunities. 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.

Please Note the Tree City Luncheon, originally scheduled for March 19th, has been CANCELLED. It will not be rescheduled. We look forward to celebrating with you all next year.
Save the Date! The 2020 ReLeaf Conference is July 23-25th at Canisius College in Buffalo
