This year’s 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.

PlantAmnesty and UW Botanic Gardens partner to deliver the Urban Forest Symposium each spring. Each year’s symposium focuses on a timely topic and brings together a diverse audience including arborists, land managers, designers, program managers, municipal planners, volunteers, and advocates.

Who should attend: Indigenous, university, student, civic, governmental, and nonprofit urban community organization individuals, including arborists, land managers, designers, program managers, planners, volunteers, and advocates.

Agenda coming in early 2020.
