ACER is launching our Seniors Measure Up program this spring for 2023-24

By Announcement, Parks

New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) “Seniors Measure Up !”


This program provides opportunities to improve seniors’ health and well-being.

The ACER Seniors Measure UP program will include local hands-on learning activities outdoors and indoor digital learning experiences.

Outdoors: seniors can become mentors and tree stewards in their local parks and learn to understand and report on tree health and growth over 3 seasons.

Indoors: the winter opportunities will be through remote learning and join in topics chosen together.


June 17 will be the first day in the field – please email for more details on how to volunteer.


Education and training to track the success of tree species is the key to all of ACER programs.
