2016 Canopy Cover Webinar
Monday, May 8
9 - 10 am
Canopy cover is the percent of the city that's covered by trees, as seen in an aerial view. Canopy cover is an important management tool for the City to understand the extent and distribution of trees in Seattle. Seattle's goal, established in 2007, is to reach 30% canopy cover by 2037. The City of Seattle has recently undertaken a new canopy cover study to measure where Seattle's urban forest is in relation to our goals. Results of that study will be presented in this public webinar. You can connect from your computer, tablet, or smartphone through this link: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/818824541
You can also dial in using your phone.

Central District Tree Walk
Sunday, May 14
10 - 11:30 am
Meet at Garfield Community Center (2323 E Cherry St)
Throughout its existence, several cultures have called the Central District home: from its Jewish beginnings to a Japanese-American neighborhood to becoming a cultural hub for African-American Seattlites. This neighborhood’s rich history is reflected in the diversity of trees that grow throughout the neighborhood. Join us on a Tree Walk this Mother’s Day as we explore many of the unique and historic trees that grow in the northern end of the Central District, including 3 of Seattle’s Heritage Trees. Many of these trees have been here to see the Central District change over the decades, and we will learn a bit about the history of the Central District from the perspective of the trees that inhabit it!
