GS Day Poster 2013 with Logos low res

You are cordially invited to join the 8th Annual Green Seattle Day - November 2nd from 10 am to 2 pm. Green Seattle Day is a meaningful way to connect with nature and create a healthy and vibrant community by planting native trees and shrubs in a park near you. This is the biggest annual celebration of Seattle’s forested parks, the committed neighbors who care for them, and the kick-off event for the 2013-2014 restoration planting season.  All tools and supplies are provided. We welcome you to roll up your sleeves and have fun in the forest.

The event takes place in 17 parks city-wide.  The Mayor is confirmed to kick off the day at the West Duwamish Greenbelt, this year’s central hub site hosted by Nature Consortium, Forterra and Seattle Parks.  Let us know if you would like to come to the hub site at West Duwamish Greenbelt or if you would like to join one of the other Parks listed below.
