Are you interested in creating a greener Melbourne?
The Citizen Forester Program holds events that allow you to meet new people, learn new skills and build knowledge about green space in our city. The program has a variety of activities that allow you to participate in meaningful, fun and rewarding environmental work.
If you want to join in, sign up to our mailing list and we'll be in touch with events.
Since 2011, the City of Melbourne has worked closely with the community to develop the Urban Forest Strategy and Urban Forest Precinct Plans for each of the city’s 10 precincts. This collaboration has fostered high levels of interest and participation in creating a greener Melbourne.
The Citizen Forester Program was established to facilitate a meaningful connection with the community to grow and enhance one of Melbourne's most important assets: our urban forest.
To be the first to hear about upcoming events, register your details below. We’ll send email updates about the Program and details about how to sign up for activities. Information about upcoming events will be posted on this page.
Citizen Forester Program events are open to everyone, but please note children must be supervised by a guardian. If you have particular access requirements our team will be happy to discuss how we can assist.
