2024 Municipal Forestry Institute

Jekyll Island, GA

Applications are now being accepted for SMA's Municipal Forestry Institute 2024! Registration opens on 8/1/2023 and closes 11/1/2023. The Institute will be held on beautiful Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. Swaying live oak trees and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean will serve as the perfect backdrop for a week of inspiration, leadership growth, and community-building with fellow urban foresters. MFI is the only leadership program focused on the people who make or support daily tree planting and care decisions. You'll learn and network with the people who know and understand your work, all while building your skills and confidence to lead your urban forestry program to the next level!
