Tree School 2020

 

Though OSU Extension was not able to hold their 2020 Clackamas County Tree School in March, you will still be able to enjoy the classes you were looking forward to taking. 

OSU Extension Forestry and Natural Resources is working with the Partnership for Forestry Education to bring you this 15-week webinar series. You can participate in many of the classes that were set for Tree School Clackamas, along with some new classes developed exclusively for Tree School Online.

THESE WEBINARS ARE FREE FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS.
