Trees Over Durham Forum

Come learn all about trees in Durham, and tell us what you would like to see in the future. Start the day learning all about trees, then participate in visioning sessions where you get to tell us what you think. We really want to know. At the end, we’ll hear from people who have made trees work for diverse communities, and produce a vision statement of what we want for our trees and communities in Durham.

Register today!

Tuesday, April 25, 2:30 p. m. – 8 p.m.
Durham Arts Center, 120 Morris Street
Dinner will be available for registered participants.
Childcare will be available, but you must register to let us know how many children will need care.

 A draft agenda is available now.  A complete agenda of the forum will be available here when it is finalized. Please check back!

This forum is organized by the Durham Tree Advocates with financial support from Leaf and Limb Tree Service, Vaguely Reminiscent, and Duke Energy.
