New Field Form!
Attention Citizen Pruners of Sherburne County! There is a new Field Form (PDF) to use when pruning in your community. The new Field Form is meant to reflect the changes in data collection that the University of Minnesota is asking volunteers to report. Lucky for you, it consists of mainly checking boxes and providing a few details on who participated and when you were out pruning. Just don't forget to log your pruning data as a group and to have one group member report that information via the online reporting form or by scanning the original copies to [email protected]. If you have any questions regarding this change, do not hesitate to check in with the Volunteer Programs Coordinator.
Currently, there are no pruning events scheduled at this time. If you are interested in completing some fieldwork independently, please contact Franny Gerde at [email protected].
Citizen Pruner Resources
Hopefully everyone who attended training still has their Sherburne County Citizen Pruner Manual (PDF). If not, they are attached in case you need another look or have misplaced yours. The city will be providing the Field Forms at pruning events and will be collecting them and sharing pruning specifics. Please, still enter your volunteer personal hours online on the Education & Volunteer Hours Reporting page.
