Happy New Year! With each new year comes new resolutions. Have you resolved to do more volunteer work? Are you passionate about making your community more green and environmentally friendly? Then volunteer with Tree Ottawa! Many opportunities will be coming up, so check our website often for updates. Currently, we are looking for volunteers to do some outreach and promote our Adopt-a-Tree tool!
Adopt-a-Tree Outreach: Have you noticed all those city trees along the sidewalks? Don’t they add a lovely touch of nature to our city streets? Unfortunately, those trees have an average lifespan of 7 years. All they need is a little tender loving care. They need to be adopted! We’ve just rolled out our free web-based Adopt-a-Tree Mapping Tool, and we need several passionate individuals to go out and promote it! This is a relationship building opportunity, and not for the shy. If you are comfortable talking to people, enjoy being outside and active, have good technical skills, and are passionate about trees, then you'd be great for this.
We are having an info session about this project next Tuesday, on January 13th at 5:30. For location details and to RSVP, please go here: http://www.ecologyottawa.org/open_tree_map_outreach
Tell your friends and family! We look forward to seeing you there.
