Become a Tree School Volunteer

Join us in the classroom of local schools and engage young minds in the sustainability of our community! By volunteering with Tree School, you help students navigate our tree curriculum which engages students in learning the importance of trees and how they can best care for our urban forest. You will guide students through a variety of hands-on activities to reinforce the four Ps of trees: planning, planting, preserving, and promoting. 

  • Planning: Guide a soil experiment to learn the impact a tree can have on ground cover temperature.
  • Planting: Walk the school grounds with students and make predictions of where trees should be planted and why. You can also participate in the tree planting on the school's campus with the faculty and students.
  • Preserving: Help conduct tree assessments on campus by guiding student observation and using tools to measure, identify, and evaluate trees.
  • Promoting: Facilitate collaboration, as students work in teams to conduct research and compile what they've learned to create a promotional poster about trees.

Our hope is that our Tree School Volunteers can be there to ask purposeful questions and encourage critical thinking during each activity with the students, furthering their love of learning. Tree School is four sessions with the school's grade of choice. These sessions are during school hours Monday-Friday, and the time commitment will be based on your availability. If you have a passion for education, or you're curious if this is the right fit for you, join us for a volunteer training on August 29 from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm! Please send your RSVP to Sally Broadaway at sally@upwithtrees.org, or call (918) 610-8733.
