Educational Programs

The IUFC annually hosts a winter and summer program and a fall conference. Each of these events is open to anyone that has an interest in urban and community forestry. These events are discounted to our members. These events serve as networking opportunities for urban forestry volunteers and professionals to meet others with the same ideals and challenges in our Indiana communities. These events also host nationally- known speakers and presenters working on the latest urban forestry trends.

IUFC “Continuing Education Funds” are available to current members as a way to offset costs to urban forestry events. And, the IUFC Awards are presented annually at our fall conference to Indiana’s outstanding projects and people in urban forestry.
