Submit a City Teams application through ACT to attend the Partners in Community Forestry National Conference
The Arbor Day Foundation and The Alliance for Community Trees are pleased to announce the City Teams partnership program. Through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service Urban & Community Forestry Program, the City Teams partnership program promotes the development of sustainable community partnerships within the urban forest community by encouraging two-person teams to develop mutually-beneficial collaborative goals around their community trees. The Alliance for Community Trees will select from their membership proposals seven (7) two-person City Teams to participate in this program and attend the Partners in Community Forestry National Conference for two consecutive years in support of their partnership.
City Teams selected for participation will:
• Receive a travel stipend and conference registration to attend the 2010 and 2011 Partners in Community Forestry National Conference.
• Submit pre and post conference goals regarding how your City Team wants to advance urban forest management and programs for your area.
• Report on progress periodically during the program.
• Participate in surveys regarding the program.
The application site will be open from April 15 until June 4, 2010, at www.arborday.org/shopping/conferences/cityTeams and selected teams will be notified by August 1, 2010.
