Friends of Grand Rapids Parks provides education and training to help neighbors become knowledgeable in tree planting, maintenance, and identification. Certified Neighborhood Foresters are constant advocates and leaders for trees in their communities - and by taking this class, you're on your way!
We rely on our Neighborhood Foresters to help educate, advocate, and provide support for neighborhood-based tree projects. For more information on our Neighborhood Forester Program, please click here.
All members of the community are welcome to attend classes free of charge. However, if you would like to make a $5 donation per class to help cover staff time and materials, it is much appreciated!
