Welcome to Trees for Watertown’s Teens for Trees program

Spring is around the corner! Time to start thinking about how we can support and grow our local forest. How can trees help us now and in the future? What can you do? How can Watertown assist you?

Come hear from our teens and professionals about “Trees and Climate Change in Watertown“, Saturday March 23rd from 10 am to noon at the Watertown Savings Bank Room, Watertown Public Library.

Speakers include: Chris Hayward, Watertown’s Forestry Supervisor and Tree Warden; Jennifer Hushaw Shakun, Applied Forestry Scientist at
Manomet: “Our Urban Forests in a Warming World”; David Meshoulam and teen participants from Trees for Watertown’s Teens for Trees Program; Libby Shaw, President of Trees for Watertown

There will also be information tables where community members can connect with a variety of groups working on enhancing, protecting and enjoying Watertown’s natural environment.
