Our volunteers are the heartwood of TreeUtah’s ability to carry out our mission of improving the quality of life for people in communities throughout the Salt Lake Valley through tree plantings and environmental stewardship. But volunteering is not only an opportunity to get out and give back; it is also a fantastic way of community building and meeting others that share your and our passion for helping to improve the integrity of Utah’s environment.
The benefits of volunteering are numerous and long-lasting. Volunteering, getting outside and planting trees are proven ways of protecting your own mental and physical health by getting fresh air and physical activity, meeting and interacting with new people, and providing a sense of purpose by doing a service for your community. Volunteering provides the unique opportunity to meet people from all walks of life with similar interests and a shared sense of pride for giving back and helping others. At TreeUtah, you get to do all of this, all while improving the environment!
