COMMUNITY
EDUCATION

Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or new to the world of trees, our Community Education program offers engaging opportunities for all to connect with nature, deepen understanding, and gain the skills to become stewards of our urban forest. Join us in nurturing a more resilient and vibrant urban environment for generations to come!

GUIDED WALKS

Friends of the Urban Forest hosts Guided Walks of the trees and sidewalk gardens of San Francisco, led by diverse community members who have different areas of expertise and focus.

The purpose of our Guided Walks is to cultivate appreciation for and engagement with San Francisco's urban forest. Our hope is that stories of these trees and gardens will connect people with their urban environment and inspire them to become stewards of the urban forest in a variety of ways.
