Crew Leader Training - October 25th!


salemcltraining-01Crew Leaders are one of our most important volunteer roles as they help teach our volunteers how to plant trees and work together as a team.

Crew Leaders attend our October 25th training to learn how to plant trees and how to guide small groups of volunteers. Crew Leaders commit to guiding small volunteer groups at Saturday morning events throughout the planting season in our two planting programs:

  • The Neighborhood Trees program plants large street and yard trees throughout Salem & Portland neighborhoods.

  • The Green Space program plants small native trees and shrubs in natural areas and green spaces to restore native habitat and improve watershed health.

REGISTER HERE for the October 25th Training!

Each Crew Leader receives the coveted Tree Team t-shirt and is invited to attend FOT leadership celebrations. Being a Crew Leader is a way to give back to your community and make new connections - all while having fun! You'll be hard-pressed to find a warmer way to spend the winter!

Email Jenny & Ian at volunteer@friendsoftrees.org for more information.

Volunteer planters (and groups!) always needed


Salem 4.6.13 - 2

We organize public tree planting events every Saturday morning from October - May and we always need help planting the trees. Planting with Friends of Trees is a great way to get outside, learn how to plant trees, meet people, fulfill service learning requirements and help make the Salem region greener and healthier - all at once!

Volunteer as a group! Friends of Trees planting events are excellent ways for groups to learn team-building skills, have fun together and give back to the community.  RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of more than 5 people - please click HERE to do so.

If you're under 18 years old, please bring a signed copy of our Youth Waiver with you to the event.

Want to be notified of an upcoming volunteer event in your neck of the woods? Fill out our Salem Volunteer Interest Form!

We look forward to planting with you this season!
