California ReLeaf curates a selection of relevant online educational opportunities for you to watch & learn from on-demand.
The speakers will discuss the growing body of research demonstrating the strong relationship between greening and physical, mental, and social health. You will get a fresh look at the most up-to-date research in the field. The speakers will also share their very own community-based, randomized controlled trial to reduce obesity in low-income communities, which includes a tree planting and stewardship campaign, a whole health program with peer support, and specialized social media engagement. Join us for this ground-breaking exploration into the world of health, well-being, and trees!

Learn about California’s first-ever statewide interactive viewer that shows urban tree canopy in California! Its purpose is to help capture community services from trees. Understanding the extent and location of its existing tree canopy can help a community design and implement sound management practices to maximize those services: prioritizing locations for tree planting, establishing urban forestry master plans and sustainability plans, and managing threats to canopy loss. The map viewer also highlights population and environmental characteristics (e.g. air pollution and urban heat island) that can help identify communities disproportionately burdened by risks that urban tree cover may help ameliorate.
Speaker: Miranda Hutten, US Forest Service
