Trees Matter Shade Tree Events

Shade Tree Event at Desert Botanical Garden on June 1, 2019

Trees Matter will be facilitating the SRP Shade Tree Workshop Event at Desert Botanical Garden on Saturday, June 1, 2019. This is a workshop ONLY event, as we do not distribute trees during the hot summer months. SRP Participants who attend a workshop between June-August will pick up their trees at a separate tree pick-up event in September. Learn more about this energy efficiency program at: .

However, this event is still volunteer-powered! And we would love YOUR help!

There are many volunteer roles that help make the day a great success. You can read about each of the roles in the sign-up below, and sign-up directly for whichever sounds like the best fit for you.

Volunteers will be helping to greet & direct the participants, and register participants for 2 tree-care workshops (beginning at 8am and 10am). We also ask for several Master Gardeners or Arborists to answer participants’ questions about which tree is the best fit for them.

We will have lots of snacks and refreshments throughout the morning! 

The event will take place at:

Desert Botanical Garden
Papago Park, 1201 N Galvin Pkwy,
Phoenix, AZ 85008

An email of additional details will be sent to you the week before the event. We can't wait to see you out there!!

Note: All volunteers under age 18 will need to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian. We will have blank copies of the waiver on site, or you can download the youth waiver here and bring it with you.
