Summer Tree Camp for junior arborists
Thanks to funding from the PNC Foundation and American Eagle Outfitters Foundation, Tree Pittsburgh is hosting its first ever Sumer Tree Camp for middle school aged children in 2018.
This year, our summer day camps are designed for kids ages 11–14. Campers explore the outdoors, tour the Heritage Nursery, study the Allegheny River, make crafts, observe birds and other wildlife, and, of course, learn all about trees while having fun! Choose your week preference and then join us for a one of a kind junior arborist training camp.
Explore the urban forest, field, and river and discover the many benefits trees provide to our City. Tour the Tree Pittsburgh Heritage Nursery and discover the fascinating life of trees. Each day will focus on a different theme including tree identification, journaling, insects, tree planting, tree biology, tree care, reforestation techniques, art and more. Meet staff arborists and discover how you can make a difference in the urban forest through hands on lessons and field techniques. The week concludes with a field trip to explore a forest outside of the City in the Laurel Highlands (transportation for field trips will be provided).
