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 in a monthly email newsletter. We anticipate primarily communicating email-only through DEC Delivers by 2021.

The 2021 ReLeaf Conference will be held July 22-24, 2021 in Buffalo, NY!
