Special Event!

Green Seattle Day     November 8, 2014  9AM-1PM  

Join the Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail and the Green Seattle Partnership for the kick-off of planting season in the city.  Help keep Seattle the “Emerald City”!  We’ll be planting native trees, shrubs and under-story plants along a newly cleared section of the trail. 

This is a great way to get your kids outdoors and to help them plant a tree that they can come back and watch grow.  No kids?  It is also a good chance to do something yourself to build good habitat, plant trees that store carbon and clean the air that you breathe, slow water runoff and a myriad of other positive things.

Space is limited & filling up quickly.  Sign up soon!
