Get Involved

Whether you prefer digging through dirt or emails, you can help!

Attend an Upcoming Event

Tree care events occur all year, weather permitting.  Planning meetings are the 4th Thursday each month. We also participate in events such as Earth Day!


Volunteers run STLNF! Community outreach, event organizing, web design, social media, graphic design, and more all happen thanks to our volunteers.
