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 communicating email-only through DEC Delivers by 2021.

The 2020 ReLeaf Conference is being postponed. We'll be back July 22-24, 2021 in Buffalo!
