Urban Forestry Grant Awarded to Palm Beach County

Urban Forestry Education <UF Laura Sanagorski>

Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension Service would like to thank the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Florida Forest Service for their award through the 2011 National Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program. This grant will support a project entitled ” Strengthening our Urban Forest Through Education”.  This project will support arboricultural training for professionals, residents, and Master Gardener volunteers, as well as the creation of electronic learning modules available to all for free.

We look forward to implementing this project and give a special thanks to Mr. Adam Putnam, Commissioner of Agriculture, Mr. James Karels, Director of Florida Forest Services, and Mr. Charlie Marcus, Urban Forestry Director of Florida Forest Services.
