Budding Map Makers!

ImageProxyOver the last month Urban Forestry has hosted data entry volunteers, who are taking the umpteen sheets of street tree data collected by Montavilla Tree Buds this summer and putting them into a graphic electronic database. This information will be used to construct maps that will help up better understand where and what is needed to maintain and improve our public lands. All of this data will be public and fully accessible, so you can see what species are on your block and visualize the amazing diversity of trees we recorded in the hood. Pretty exciting!

Want to join the data entry team?

Data entry shifts are available Monday – Friday from 7 am – 3:30 pm at the Urban Forestry office, located at  10910 N Denver Avenue. If you have basic skills in ArcGIS that’s great. If not, staff or volunteers can train you if you commit a number of hours to volunteering. Data entry ends October 9th, 2015.

Contact us or Urban Forestry directly to get involved.
