Volunteer Opportunities 2018

At least once a month the pruning club meets for a volunteer opportunity. At these meetings you will get the chance to work on material in the landscape and receive pointers and tips on pruning techniques from experienced pruners.

Everyone Welcome -- All Skill Levels -- Bring Your Tools.

If you have not attended one of our volunteer meetings before, please be sure to contact the appropriate contact person for the event you plan on attending.
