COVID-19 UPDATE: 

This symposium, originally scheduled for May, 2020, has been postponed to 2022. The nature of this symposium, which relies heavily on personal and professional connections, networking, and outreach could not effectively be moved to a virtual format.

This Urban Forest Symposium will center Coastal environmental leaders and Elders, Teachers and cultural individuals. Presenters from a range of disciplines will highlight different perspectives to form new relationships, build understanding, and increase knowledge of urban environments. Looking at the urban forest through a lens of relationships, relocation, regeneration and reflections, presenters will highlight different perspectives and share stories of successes that can inform attendees’ work and advocacy for urban tree stewardship. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to interweave more encompassing solutions for trees.
