Trees for you and me!

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science." - Albert Einstein

This series of activities melds art, science, and stewardship to protect the urban and wildland trees of the Bay Area. This is a collaborative project between University Extension specialists, 4-H Youth Development, charter schools, private advocacy groups, and the Forest Service, funded by a grant from the USDA-Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Research Station.

As youth in 4-H clubs, after-school groups, library programs, and classrooms engage in 2013 and beyond, the map below will be populated with the locations of trees that have been adopted. Check back again to see our urban forest grow!

We currently have Tree Stewards from the following workshops:

  • Rocketship Los Suenos kindergarten classes, San Jose
  • Venetia Valley 3rd and 4th grade LEAP program, San Rafael
  • Town School kindergarten, San Francisco
  • Manor School, Fairfax
  • San Pedro School 3rd and 4th grade LEAP program, San Rafael
