Let’s plant a tree (or shrub) together! Join us as we celebrate the beginning of planting season in the Greenway on October 26, 2019 at our annual Tree Planting Celebration. This year is extra-special. It marks our 200,000th tree planted in partnership with Carter Subaru. Their support has helped us plant forests throughout the Greenway, and we can’t wait to continue this year – with your help, of course!
This event will be held at Lake Sammamish State Park and will be part of 20 years of habitat restoration along Issaquah Creek, supporting salmon habitat in this critical area. Celebrations will begin promptly at 10am and include planting activities, education stations (sign up day of!), coffee, light lunch, snacks, and more. Planting events are great for individuals, families, groups, and work teams. With a goal of 1,000 native trees and shrubs to be planted, we will all be able to plant a tree and leave a bit muddier than we arrived! No experience necessary, and all training provided.
Sign up today, and please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions.
