Members may earn volunteer hours by attending our Tree Steward Membership Meetings.   At each membership meeting, we host a continuing education speaker presenting a variety of tree-related topics.
Our membership meetings are normally held at Ivy Creek on the fourth Wednesday of the month, but from March through August 2020 we cancelled in-person meetings due to the COVID-19 precautions.  We are now offering virtual meetings through Zoom in 2021 until we can meet again.
