DEC’s Urban and Community Forestry Program is moving toward electronic communication of workshops, conferences and grant opportunities, and away from postal mailings as much as possible. We encourage you to sign up for emails through DEC Delivers at https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/NYSDEC/subscriber/new?topic_id=NYSDEC_22. In addition to urban forestry topics, you will receive information on forests, plants and land conservation across the state. We anticipate primarily email-only through DEC Delivers by 2021. We will continue to send emails through our current database in addition to DEC Delivers until 2021.
