Master Tree Steward Program

26th Annual 4-H Master Tree Steward Program open enrollment

Interested in Trees? Enjoy Teaching Kids?

This wonderful program is familiar to many of our Master Gardeners who are also Master Tree Stewards.  You may be interested in trying it out and spread the word about it to your friends.  It is a good fit for MG’ers as most of the activity happens during the fall and winter when our gardens are put to bed and we are looking at seed catalogs.

The 4-H Master Tree Steward Program is an enjoyable, educational program for adults. The classes teach about the nature and life of trees. You will learn how trees grow; how to identify them; about their importance to our environment; and fun ways to share this knowledge with children. There are no exams or quizzes. Once trained, you will have opportunities to teach a one-hour program to groups of interested and attentive schoolchildren.

Your commitment is SHORT term, but importance and impact is LONG term

Classes will meet every Wednesday from September 4th to December 11th, 2019. (Except for any holidays that fall on those days). Field trips are included in the program.
