Have you ever wanted to learn more about tree identification, planting technique, environmental justice, and, and how to train other people to plant trees? This training will teach you everything you need to know! The training is free, and includes an online and in-person session. The online session will take most people 2-3 hours, and can be completed from the comfort of your own home. The in-person session will be on Saturday Oct 30th, 9am-1pm in West Salem (map) -- this outdoor session will take your online learning and apply it to the hands-on act of planting. After you complete the two-part training, we count on you to attend 4 planting events on Saturday mornings, Oct-April.

What about COVID-19?
Note on personal transportation: Due to Covid-19, carpooling to planting sites is not recommended with anyone outside of your household, you will need to provide your own transportation (biking and walking are possible at many events!). We are sorry for the burden that this places on many and look forward to encouraging carpooling again when it is safer!
Salem Planting Schedule: Here is the 21-22 planting schedule in Salem! As a trained Crew Leader, we ask you to attend 4 of these events. You're also qualified to lead crews in the Portland-Metro area if you'd prefer.
