SEATTLE — Here’s a tour you won’t want to miss: on Saturday, March 23, Tree Ambassador Natasha Mann will lead a tour of the trees in Freeway Park — home to many interesting species, including unique magnolias, larches, hemlocks, and more.

Everyone is welcome — spread the word and bring a friend. Natasha, an English/Spanish interpreter, will lead the walk first in English and then in Spanish.

The Tree Ambassador Program is a collaboration of the City of Seattle and Forterra that empowers residents to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. Program work is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program.
