All of what we had planned to train folks during neighborhood walkabouts has now become VIRTUALIZED and with social distancing, we are doing things a little differently.
Tree Mapping can be done solo, with a partner or with your kids as a family activity when you go out to get some air. When things get back to normal we will have outdoor gatherings again, promise !
But for now, its all about a 3-step process to get this JC Tree Mapping Census off the ground –
