Join us for a beautification project at the National Tidal Basin. Volunteers will become Urban Foresters and help maintain the National Urban Forest at Washington Monument Grounds. Urban forestry is associated with the care of individual trees and tree populations in the urban environment. Together we can ensure that future trees and wildlife will have an opportunity for a healthier life leaving a legacy for future generations to enjoyand expand upon.
