Under the direction of Children’s Forest naturalists, US Forest Service botanists, and community mentors, youth volunteers are trained in a hands-on environment to complete forest restoration on barren landscapes. This includes working at greenhouse and tree nursery facilities, participating in native plant workshops, and working at project sites to learn the complex components of restoration. These include native plant identification, seed collecting and propagation, project monitoring, and care and evaluation.
