Our City Forest

Image_202007011030

Help improve and maintain our site at Martial Cottle Park on Fridays from 9am-12pm. No prior experience necessary!

Over the past year, we have planted over fifty trees at our 2-acre site. There are plenty of opportunities to build and maintain our ever increasing number of projects here. Help us achieve our goal of creating an educational center at this location for people in our community to come and learn about urban forestry.

Volunteer activities include removing invasive species, watering trees, and revamping our parcel.

Please keep in mind: COVID-19 protocols are in place. Mask wearing and sanitizing will be enforced. A volunteer limit of 5 volunteers per shift will also be implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19.

About Our City Forest

Location:

646 N. King Rd., San Jose, CA 95133, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate a green and healthy Silicon Valley by engaging community members in the appreciation, protection, growth and maintenance of our urban ecosystem, especially our urban forest.

Description

The ultimate goal of the program is to facilitate the planting of one million trees in Silicon Valley, utilizing one million people. We have planted over 70,000 trees in San Jose, encouraging community members to join us in improving the environmental conditions of their communities. We focus on making a healthy urban forest accessible to all by offering services targeted towards disadvantaged communities because we believe a healthy environment should be available to all people, not just those who have the resources to access it.
