ShadeKeepers Certification Program

ShadeKeepers Certification Program

Enhance community pride and beauty by coming together to learn how to plant, care for, and prune urban trees. Hands-on training assists neighbors with the maintenance of their trees and shrubs.

Interested individuals must first attend a certification class, and will then have the opportunity to volunteer as a ShadeKeeper.

ShadeKeeper certification and recognition is available to those who complete service requirements. For more information contact Keep Grand Prairie Beautiful Coordinator Amanda Lindbergh by phone at 972-237-8152 or via email at


Please do not complete the volunteer application for this program unless you have attended or are scheduled to attend the ShadeKeepers Certification class.
