For Arbor Month, OLWC will be hosting two online training sessions (covering the same material) on Saturday, April 10 from 10:00-11:30 am, and Wednesday, April 14 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Lake Oswego’s urban forest is comprised of thousands of trees, so OLWC is relying on our passionate volunteer community scientists (like you!) to make this project a success!
Oswego Lake Watershed Council (OLWC) has developed a new community science program that will train volunteers on how to measure and collect data on trees growing throughout Lake Oswego to contribute to a dataset that will provide a snapshot of the health and diversity of our urban forest. Data collected by our community will provide arborists, scientists, community members, and city planners with information about the economic and ecological benefits of our urban forest.
