2021 North Texas Urban Forestry Conference
The Cross Timbers and Trinity Blacklands Urban Forestry Councils'
annual urban forestry conference is currently in the planning
stages. The tentative date is Wednesday, February 17, 2021, and
currently we look to return to the Hurst Conference Center. Given
COVID-19 and the uncertainty of holding events we are still
determining the best options for providing an engaging and
informative conference while maintaining safety.
We are also looking for additional speakers so if you are interested
in presenting at the conference please contact Laura Miller, Tarrant
County Extension Agent.
Where Would We Be Without The Master Naturalists?
Nowhere, that's where; and probably 3-years farther behind than
we already are. Check out the
Master Naturalists newsletter.
Note: The following is an example article from an older Dragonflyer
several years back:
Steve Houser, Speaker For Our January Monthly Meeting We will all
get a treat at our January Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, January 3.
2007, as Steve Houser, with Arborilogical Services, who is also a
NTC Master Naturalist, will give a presentation on the Texas Tree
Trails program, a long time approved project/activity for our
Chapter. During his presentation, Steve will show us how to properly
measure a tree.
Texas Tree Trails are planning a training session in
January or February for our new volunteer members who enjoy trees and
would like to help preserve them. They will teach new volunteers how
to properly measure and how to identify common local trees.
They do not have a date yet. Keep your eyes and ears open for an
announcement on the training.
The Same goes for DFW Region Master Gardeners
Some of our most prolific volunteers come from the ranks of the
Tarrant Co and
Master Gardeners' Associations. Well educated in the
botanical sciences and also very willing to serve their communities
and fellow man. Not only do they volunteer their services to Texas
Tree Trails and other worthy causes but also have a full schedule of
educational opportunities provided by Master gardeners on their
event calendar that complement our agenda the year around.
Green Source DFW advances the environmental movement in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by promoting: green living, sustainable practices, nonprofit environmental organizations, eco-friendly green businesses, environmental education, scientific information, public policy discussions and socially responsible investing.
