Forestry

No matter your level of expertise, whether you're interested in helping out for a day or wanting a more long-term commitment, the Forestry Section has a volunteer opportunity for you. 

Volunteer workdays at the Tree Farm projects can vary by season, but often include transplanting trees into containers; planting in the tree fields; weeding; staking and trying trees; and organizing the tree inventory. Bring your family, friends, co-workers and fellow tree enthusiasts. Rain or shine, we'll be here with something to do for every physical activity level.

Our graffiti scavenger hunts are designed for individuals and larger groups who would like to volunteer with us. The group for the day will be split into two or three smaller groups and from there search for graffiti within Downtown Fort Worth.

You will be given a guideline of popular locations and asked to log these locations in the MyFW app. Doing so will assist our team with the actual coordinates of the graffiti, for quick removal the next day.

Purpose
To help reduce and discourage criminal defacement of private and public property and make Fort Worth an even more beautiful community.

Duties
In this very visible role, you’ll attack graffiti by reporting graffiti locations in the myFW app. You will be walking around Downtown Fort Worth searching for graffiti in the area, we will give you a few clues and locations to get you started. Once you find a location you will use the myFW app to document the graffiti. At the end of your scavenger hunt, we will tally all findings and determine a winner. 

Location
The starting location for all scavenger hunts will be in front of the Chisholm Trail Mural near the Starbucks in Sundance Square (141 W 3rd St, Fort Worth, TX 76102). Throughout the duration of the scavenger hunt, you will be walking in different areas downtown, by the end of your hunt, you will meet back at our starting location.

Our scavenger hunts are a self-guided volunteer opportunity. Your host will meet you at the beginning of the hunt and will be on-site when you finish. If you are needing any assistance throughout your volunteer day, you will be given an on-site number to call.
