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.  Your work will  make a better habitat for bird populations,  make the trail more esthetically pleasing and even help slow climate change

Hope to see you on the trail!
