Urban Forestry Camp

Urban Forestry Careers Camp

The Maryland Forestry Foundation is planning to harness the momentum generated by the Mel Noland Fellowship Program and the Natural Resources Careers Camp program. We aim to build upon this success by introducing a new initiative: the Urban Forestry Careers Camp for high school students, hosted at the University of Maryland College Park campus.

Set to launch in the summer of 2024, our upcoming Urban Forestry Careers Camp (UFCC) will emphasize urban forestry programs within Maryland's municipal and county governments. This venture will be undertaken in collaboration with the statewide Green Schools program, with the goal of strengthening the connection between the evolving stewardship education requirements and the promising landscape of future "green career" opportunities within urban environments.
