Griselda Venegas-Murguia is an Arborist Apprentice at Openlands and works with the Forestry Team to learn and understand proper standards and protocols while getting hands-on experience of professional tree care techniques. Griselda believes that the key to success in learning is to always ask questions while getting on-the-job training to help be successful along the way. Griselda has volunteered for Orland Grasslands with the Forest Preserves of Cook County, removing invasive species, distributing legumes, and burning brush piles. Griselda also completed a Treekeepers course in March 2021. She obtained an Alternative Herbicide License for the special application of Herbicides to control invasive plants on public lands.
