About the Retreat

The Network Retreat is the Annual get-together for California’s urban forest nonprofits and community organizations dedicated to improving the health and livability of California cities by planting and caring for trees. The Retreat is an excellent peer-to-peer learning opportunity and allows you to meet with other Network Member organizations all over the state, both large and small.
