New Crew Leader Update!

By Jenny Bedell-Stiles

We’re kicking into high gear here at Friends of Trees as we enter the thick of the planting season. One indicator of this is, drum roll please … the 85 motivated volunteers who have trained to become Crew Leaders!

The Neighborhood Trees program hosted a successful Crew Leader training on November 5 followed by the fabulous Green Space Initiative Crew Leader training on November 12. Photos in the slide show above were taken by Chijo Takeda on November 12, and photos below were taken by FOT staff on November 5. We are grateful to all who came to get trained, who have now joined our skilled, energetic, and terribly good looking Crew Leader ranks.

If you missed these last two trainings and are interested in becoming one of our treasured Crew Leaders, don’t fret! It’s not too late to get trained! We have one last Crew Leader training for our Neighborhood Trees program from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm this Saturday, November 19,  in Vancouver, WA. (All you Portland people, it’s really not that far away.)

Please register online or call/email Andy Meeks or Jenny Bedell-Stiles by Friday afternoon.
