Volunteer Opportunities Can You Spare a Few Hours a Month for Forests and Wildlife?
If you would like to donate a few hours of your time each month for forests and wildlife, there are several programs that need your help and energy.
The Meskwaka Tree Project: Urban and Community Forestry
The Meskwaka Tree Project (Mesk-wa-ka is an Algonquian word meaning Always Green) is a training and outreach program for urban and community forestry citizen volunteers. As a component of the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension System urban and community forestry program, the Meskwaka Tree Project provides training, resource materials and support to selected volunteer community leaders, innovators and activists so they may develop new or enhance existing programs and organizations. For further information on how you may apply to the Meskwaka Tree Project, or for subscriptions to the newsletter: call (860)570-9257, or
