Rediscovering a Forgotten Arboretum
At the beginning of June Worcester Tree Initiative was invited to visit classes at Auburn's Swanson Road Intermediate School, formerly the Auburn Middle School. Derek, an Auburn native and an AMS alum was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit his old school and learn about an arboretum that's been growing undetected just outside the windows for 40 years.
YAFs Return Summer 2017
Once again, the Worcester Tree Initiative will be watering the newly planted street trees and public trees with our Young Adult Forestry Team beginning June 26th. Thanks to our partnership with the Worcester Youth Center and Girls Inc. and the generous financial support of the Massport Foundation as well as support from the City of Worcester Water Department and DPW & P, we will employ seven part time Young Adult Foresters and 1 Full Time Summer Supervisor.
