Upcoming  Events



Annual Arbor Day Prune


  When:   Wednesday April 11th, 2018 
          8 am - 3:30 am                                
Georgetown Playfield
750 S Homer Street, Seattle 98108

For the annual Arbor Day Prune, a large group of arborists are banding together to donate service hours to the Seattle Parks Department. They are going to take on a large stand of London Plane trees at the Georgetown Playfield. In addition to properly caring for the trees, arborists will be meeting with a large group of students from the Duwamish Work Corps and discussing arboriculture while showing them their sweet moves! 
Volunteers needed! Due to the size of the event, we are going to need volunteers to help with with brush removal, food set-up and clean-up. This is a great opportunity to observe professional arborists in action and help keep our parks in great shape. If you are interested in helping with this event, please e-mail michelle.rau@plantamnesty.org to set up a game plan!
