Upcoming Webinar: Exploring Community Engagement with OpenTreeMap

Thank you to all who joined us for our first OpenTreeMap webinar – “Exploring Collaborative Tree Inventory with OpenTreeMap.” We appreciated your great questions and feedback regarding OpenTreeMap and its use for collaborative tree inventories.

We hope that you will be able to join us for the next OpenTreeMap webinar – “Exploring Community Engagement with OpenTreeMap” – on June 12 from 1-2pm ET. We’ll be looking at ways that online inventory tools and other technologies can be used to build community around the urban forest. Kelaine Vargas from Urban Ecos and Phil Silva and Liz Barry from TreeKIT will join us to discuss their experiences with community engagement initiatives in New York and San Francisco and how those projects could be adapted for use in other locations.

During this webinar, we will focus on:

  • Suggestions for encouraging public involvement in tree inventory activities
  • How community members can use OpenTreeMap to contribute tree data
  • The accuracy of citizen generated data
  • Options for tracking tree stewardship activities via OpenTreeMap
