TreeUtah offers standards-based programming to 2nd grade classes in Salt Lake County, in addition to community workshops, summer field programs and professional development opportunities for teachers.
TreeUtah, in partnership with Salt Lake County One Million Trees and Utah Society for Environmental Education, is excited to be offering school programs to 2nd grade classrooms in Salt Lake County. This unique program features our new mascot, Carrie Cottonwood, a Fremont cottonwood tree that can be found in Utah and TreeUtah’s Redwood Nature Area. The program aligns to both state and national standards and is FREE to schools located in Salt Lake County. More information about the program can be found here.
Throughout the year, TreeUtah will also be offering workshops in the community. These workshops will be presented throughout the community and in collaboration with other organizations. Topics for workshops include rainwater collection, tree planting, birding, local forests and more. More information can be found here.
During the summertime, TreeUtah makes field programs available to community centers and other groups. The Redwood Ranger Adventure Day utilizes the unique setting of the Redwood Nature Area and allows participants to explore the natural world, nestled in an urban setting. Participants have the opportunity to explore riparian areas, trees and the animals that call this place home. More information can be found here.
