Now Recruiting: Salem Crew Leaders for the 17-18 Season!

Chastain Creek 030715

 

Crew Leaders are some of our most important volunteers as they help teach other volunteers how to plant trees and work together as a team.  Crew Leaders attend a training in October to learn proper planting technique and how to guide volunteers during planting events.

During our planting season, each crew leader commits to guiding small groups of planters at four or more Saturday morning plantings and tree care events. Each Crew Leader receives our popular "Tree Team" t-shirt and is invited to attend Friends of Trees leadership appreciation celebrations.

Our next Salem Crew Leader training is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st from 9:00am-3:00pm. If you'd like to sign up to train as a Crew Leader, please register HERE.

Volunteer planters (and groups!) always needed

Calling all tree-planters!  Our community tree planting events are held Saturday mornings (9am - 1pm) from November - April and we always need more help! Planting with Friends of Trees is a great way to get outside with your friends or family (or by yourself!), learn how to plant trees, meet people, fulfill service learning requirements, and help make the Salem area greener and healthier - all in a few short hours!

Volunteer as a group! Friends of Trees planting events are excellent ways for groups to learn team-building skills, have fun together and give back to the community.  RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of 5 or more people - please click HERE to do so.

If you're under 18 years old, we require you bring a signed copy of our Youth Waiver with you to the event.

Want to be notified of an upcoming volunteer event in your neck of the woods? Fill out our Salem Volunteer Interest Form!

We look forward to planting with you this season!
