Volunteering and Learning about our Unique South Florida Ecosystems
Did you know that Miami-Dade County’s urban canopy stands at a dismal 12%, with some areas around the County only hosting 1 to 3% coverage? The national average for urban canopies stands at 33%, with 45% coverage being optimal. CITIZENS, along with its many partners, including volunteers like you, is expanding our urban forest. CITIZENS' Urban Greening and Community Forestry is targeting the areas with the lowest tree canopy, and allowing residents to adopt trees for their communities.
Please call us at 305-648-0000 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about volunteer opportunities.
Citizens for a Better South Florida, Inc., a private 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to providing environmental education, particularly to the diverse underserved community that inspires active stewardship and preservation of the south Florida environment.
