Experienced Arborist Needed to Help Trim Trees at The Crucible

Save to Favorites

The Crucible


The Crucible, a local nonprofit that provides industrial arts programming to youth and adults, is in need of an experienced arborist to trim trees around our vicinity. This would be an ongoing commitment, but not a time-intensive one; a visit once every few months would be helpful.

The volunteer would need to provide their own tools and safety gear.

Mission Statement

The Crucible is an educational facility that fosters a collaboration of Arts, Industry and Community. Through training in the fine and industrial arts, The Crucible promotes creative expression, reuse of materials, and innovative design while serving as an accessible arts venue for the general public.


The Crucible is a non-profit educational collaboration of arts, industry and community. Established in 1999, The Crucible is the Bay Area's only nonprofit sculpture studio, educational foundry and metal fabrication shop offering classes in fine and industrial arts. From cast iron to neon, and from large-scale public art to the most precise kinetic sculpture, The Crucible is fast becoming the best-equipped public industry & arts education facility on the West Coast. The vision of The Crucible is to be one of the premiere art centers in the country: a place where art thrives, is accessible, and inspires everyone in their everyday lives. It is a place where forges roar, sparks fly, glass bends, molten metals fuse and pour, clay and cement take on form, neon glows, and creativity explodes!
