How to Properly Manage Your Urban Forest in a Time of Drought – Online Workshop

Date: Tuesday, August 4th
Time: 1:00-2:00 PM

In this informative online workshop we received an update on the Governor’s Executive Drought Order, and heard from representatives at the local level on strategies that local governments can take towards meeting these water mandates while preserving their tree inventory.  This was the first of a four-part series of Urban Greening online workshops.
