We want to know how much tree canopy is available at Whittier Narrows! Trees are essential to combat the urban heat island effect. In urban and suburban areas where impermeable surfaces (asphalt, concrete) are prominent, trees help to keep surface and air temperatures cooler by providing shade and evapotranspiration.
Become a citizen scientist by helping Climate Resolve and Amigos de los Rios measure tree canopy at Whittier Narrows Park. We will train you the day of and provide all the materials.
Water and granola bars will be available.
