Youth Education

We connect youth to trees through school curriculum aligned programming, tree plantings, and environmental camp-style programs. We strive to help youth understand what our tree canopy does and to build stewards for the future.

School Programs/Curriculum Aligned

We provide programming to DC students that targets environmental literacy in order to meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and DC Public Schools Scope and Sequence.  Our outdoor learning curricula are available for DCPS and DCPCS teachers, specifically 5th grade teachers.  

School Tree Plantings

If you are a school in DC Wards 5, 7 and 8 with space for trees, we want to partner with you! We are channeling our efforts into these wards to increase canopy there, and to provide students with environmental educational experiences. Trees provide innumerable benefits to our city. Schools with plantable space are eligible for free trees. Fill out our application if you would like to plant trees with your students. 


TreeWise: Jr. Urban Forester Program

Did you know there are over 2.5 million trees in Washington, D.C.? We need your help to take care of them all! Become a Junior Urban Forester through our TreeWise environmental camp-style youth program.

We currently can offer programs in D.C. proper, for your youth aged 5-12.

Contact an Educator

Our educators are funded through grants or programs. Our educators have limited capacity to teach our signature programs at schools, camps, churches and more. Contact one of our educators for a high quality urban forest educational experience.
