We offer several interactive ways for you to learn about the urban forest. From getting your head in the class room to your hands in the dirt, LEAF wants you to join the urban forest movement. We offer distinct educational opportunities for you to choose from...


Tree Tenders Volunteer Training

This multi-day course is designed to give you a solid understanding of how trees function and what they need to survive and thrive.  Learn about the benefits of urban trees and the challenges they face.  Meet others involved in urban forest stewardship and gain practical skills you can apply immediately in your own yard and/or neighbourhood. 

Tree Tours

LEAF's Tree Tours are guided walks that highlight trees of interest in a neighbourhood and may also incorporate history, culture or personal stories.

Presentations and Workshops

Our Presentations are held indoors for groups of 20 to 150 individuals and are often an introduction to urban forestry and tree care concepts.  Our workshops usually offer a combination of indoor and hands-on learning.
