[LIBERTY] – Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Sullivan County is offering a full day Tree Steward Training on April 20 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 64 Ferndale Loomis Road in Liberty. Participants will learn to plant, prune, maintain, identify and understand trees in rural and urban environments.
Tree stewards will receive seven hours of hands on instruction with Elizabeth Higgins, Natural Resource Educator, and Susan Dollard, Community Educator and Master Gardener Program Coordinator.
CCE has already trained 32 stewards, who now volunteer to improve communities and parks by caring for trees in Sullivan County.
Attending this important program will give individuals the knowledge and skills to share with one’s community and neighbors. Each participant will be asked to volunteer ten hours back to the community on selected projects.
The fee for this class is $25.00 and will include a tree care guide book and light refreshments. Participants should provide their own lunch. Class size is limited, so pre-registration with payment is required in advance. No refunds will be given. To register, call 845-292-6180.
