May 17th and 18th marked Big Sunday Weekend, a national weekend of volunteering. We were out at White Oak Farm in Calabasas on Saturday and Hansen Dam Recreation Center in Sylmar on Sunday. Throughout the weekend more than 100 volunteers assisted with vital restoration work and tree care, removing thousands of pernicious invasive weeds and caring for hundreds of trees and native plants. The photos below recap the incredible weekend and help show just how diverse our forestry work can be!

Nicole Liner-Jigamian joined the TreePeople family after a year abroad in South and Central America, where she was lucky enough to spend most of her time outdoors, meeting new and interesting people. Upon returning to her hometown of Los Angeles, she knew she wanted a career that would allow her to further develop her knowledge of the natural world while continuing to form strong relationships with people and the community. TreePeople provided the best of both worlds. In her free time, Nicole enjoys riding her bike, watching action movies and cooking.
