Seattle reLeaf Tree Ambassador Project Support (15-226-S)

Seattle reLeaf Tree Ambassador Project Support (15-226-S)

The City of Seattle’s reLeaf program will be advertising in the near future and requesting qualifications from qualified consultants to support the Tree Ambassador volunteer project. Seattle reLeaf’s Tree Ambassador project engages volunteers in protecting and caring for the urban forest. We recruit, train, and support volunteers to take on two different kinds of projects: Tree Walks and Tree Stewardship. Tree Walks are tours of the notable trees in a neighborhood and are both self-guided written walks and hosted public events. The Tree Stewardship track engages volunteers to provide hands-on care for the trees in their neighborhood. Volunteers adopt available sites (primarily traffic triangles or other right of way parcels) or rows of street trees, develop plans to address the site’s needs (such as invasive species removal, mulching, or planting), and then organize work parties to transform the area and protect the trees. In 2016, the Tree Ambassador project will be piloting a new track to engage volunteers in collecting inventory data in conjunction with the Department of Transportation.

This contract will provide support for the Tree Ambassador project through staffing public events, organizing and leading volunteer trainings, supporting volunteer projects, and recruiting new volunteers. The contract will also cover support for the new inventory track in 2016, and in subsequent years depending on the outcome of 2016 work.
