Our City Forest


Our City Forest is looking to create Tree Tour Guides for parks in San Jose, CA and the surrounding areas, and we need you to help create them! If you've ever wanted to learn more about your local tree species, this opportunity is for you. We are looking for volunteers to go to local Santa Clara County parks, and map out a walking path and identify trees along the way. We will then use this information to create an informative guide that residents can download and use to follow along your tree tour!

All work for this opportunity can be completed remotely, and on your own time. Reach out for more information!

About Our City Forest


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.


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.
