The Forest Health Task Force offers regular opportunities for volunteers to help out. Do you have technical skills, organizational capabilities or just an interest in being part of our team because you care about protecting the forest?
The Volunteer Forest Monitoring Program includes all of Summit County. We have more than 100 volunteers, but we can always use more. We focus on keeping things simple, convenient, meaningful and FUN. The monitoring plots are close to home on US Forest Service public land. YOU CHOOSE WHERE and when, hence the term, "backyard monitoring".
Experience first-hand how our forests are changing, take pictures, take measurements, and report back to US Forest Service managers on the health of our forests.
We will host 2 trainings in late May. Training dates TBD but we'll keepe you posted. Sign up for our mailing list to be the first to know when and where we'll be holding the forest monitoring trainings.
