YOU can make a difference. We have a vision of a greener LA, but to get there, we rely on people like you to transform our region-- one community, one street, one tree at a time.
Volunteering with TreePeople is fun and rewarding. Our events empower you with the support, training and tools you need to be an engine of change. Join us each week as we plant and care for trees, remove invasive species and maintain our beautiful park!
Be a Leader: Train to be a Urban Planting Supervisor
TreePeople hosts events nearly every weekend and works with several thousand volunteers throughout the year. We are able to do this because of our core of committed Urban Planting Supervisors. Our Supervisors help at events by leading groups of volunteers to ensure trees are planted and cared for correctly and safely. Join the team and gain key leadership skills and technical knowledge. To be trained, you must attend at least two Urban Forestry events and be at least 16 years old.
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to plant and care for trees, restore our local mountains and to work in our nursery and park. To get started, take a look at our volunteer calendar and register for an event that suits you. Once registered, we will automatically email you with details and directions.
Volunteer opportunities are available for all ages with a few restrictions. People under the age of 18 not accompanied by their parent or guardian must provide a parental consent form at the event (English/Spanish). In the Angeles National Forest specifically, volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We ask that groups provide an adult chaperone for every 10 minors.
Registration is required for all events. We have to limit volunteer participation to ensure that we have enough tools, equipment and work for everyone. If you plan on bringing friends and family, please check that everyone has pre-registered for the event online.
We limit the amount of volunteers at each event so everyone has a safe, fun and rewarding experience. If an event is full, please check to see if we have availability at another event or join us on a different day.
