Growing the Community Forest (SM Leadership Training)

November 15, 2018 - 9:00 am to 10:05 am

Hagerstown, MD

The Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland will host Sustainable Maryland's annual Leadership Training workshops in November. This training series fosters leadership skills to engage diverse stakeholders, reduce contention, and garner support for sustainability initiatives.


This year's workshop topic, GROWING THE COMMUNITY FOREST, will incorporate examples, stories and tools that will help communities to strengthen and expand local tree canopy. Trees are unique amongst urban infrastructure, in that over time, they appreciate in both value and capacity. Learn about the benefits of a healthy community forest; funding sources and technical assistance available for maintaining and growing your town's tree canopy; updates on regulations, policies and ordinances at the federal, state and local level; and examples of how to engage residents to support this vital green infrastructure in their neighborhoods.
