Work Sessions

Field work sessions are scheduled once a month, weather depending, from 9 – 11am.  Location of each work session will be determined by the work session leader. Details are announced on the Tree Steward Facebook Group and sent to members by email.

Additional work sessions are sometimes planned based on a specific need.
