Join us for the first ever Trees for All: Chesapeake Regional Environmental Justice Workshop. This two-day event will bring together diverse stakeholders working to retain and increase healthy tree canopy in their communities. In-depth panel discussions with national and regional speakers and interactive sessions will outline how to address challenges to sustained community engagement and barriers to establishing healthy community canopy. If you are invested in community trees in the Chesapeake Bay region – whether you work in government, a nonprofit, the private sector or contribute as a community volunteer – this workshop is designed to help you address environmental injustice as it relates to community trees.
