Community EVENTS

COVID-19 UPDATE: In Summer 2021, we resumed our event planning, in alignment with local public health guidance. If you are interested in joining one of our upcoming events and have questions about our health and safety practices in response to COVID, please feel welcome to email us (dto@tinytrees.org).

Tiny Trees partners with an array of organizations, community members and groups to bring our commitment to a childhood spent in the outdoors beyond our Monday-Friday classrooms. These events are free and everyone is welcome! Please note that some activities might be geared toward specific age ranges (we will include that info below, if applicable).

As we develop new events and activities, or staff projects that are open to the public, we will post them on this page. If you have an idea for a community-centered event or program, please reach out to dto@tinytrees.org. To learn more about our community engagement and partnerships, or the support we receive from BSK (Best Starts for Kids), please visit our Equity page.
