Summer Tree Camp for junior arborists

 In Blog, Education, Summer Camp

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).
