Want to make an impact on the landscape of a Seattle neighborhood for decades to come? Join us for a Saturday afternoon of caring for young street trees in the Beacon Hill neighborhood! These trees may be small and young now, but with some love and care, they will provide healthy canopy for Beacon Hill- which means shade, wildlife habitat, storm water benefits and more! We will be weeding and mulching around each three to help them grow big and strong!
Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all of the tools and training needed. So bring along your friends and family and get your hands dirty!
When: Saturday, June 8th; 12:00pm-3:30pm
Where: Meet at Maplewood Playfield [map]
What to Bring: We’ll provide tools, gloves, instruction, and snacks. Please dress for the weather, wear close-toed shoes and bring a reusable water bottle.
