More information about the role: Crew Leaders help teach Friends of Trees volunteers how to plant trees and work together as a team. Each Crew Leader commits to guiding small groups of planters at 3-4 Saturday morning plantings throughout the planting season. We’ll have 4 plantings in Salem this season - and we’d love your help!

You'll wear a Friends of Trees vest at weekend plantings and receive the respect and admiration of the volunteers on your crew--as well as receive a coveted Tree Team t-shirt and great food (a hallmark of all of our planting events). You'll learn to guide volunteers on how to plant small native trees and shrubs to help restore natural areas and green spaces, as well as plant larger urban trees in Salem parks.

Join this fun and energetic team by signing up for a required training. We look forward to working with you to plant more trees in Salem!
