New Field Form!
Attention Citizen Pruners of Rochester! There is a new Field Form to use when pruning in your community. The new Field Form is meant to reflect the changes in data collection that the University of Minnesota is asking volunteers to report. Lucky for you, it consists of mainly checking boxes and providing a few details on who participated and when you were out pruning. Just don't forget to log your pruning data as a group and to have one group member report that information via the online reporting form or by scanning the original copies to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions regarding this change, do not hesitate to check in with the Volunteer Programs Coordinator.
Currently, there are no pruning events scheduled at this time. If you are interested in completing some field work independently, please contact the Rochester Forestry Department at email@example.com.
