The department of Extra-Mural Studies of University of Mumbai is offering a unique "Tree Appreciation" course to be conducted on consecutive three week ends.

The objective of this course is to create awareness about various aspects of trees that make their presence, a matter of pride to an enlightened society. Even as their utility aspects will be appreciated, their role in society, culture, environment and human interaction with them, will be focused on. Formal information about a tree that is essential for its identification and description will form the beginning, to be followed by other types of information that is available from different formal and non-formal sources. Participants will be encouraged to gather information to enrich the data bank with the faculty and ensure continuously enlarging resource base for successive batches of participants.
