Celebrate Arbor Week!
October 26-30
Visit the website here

Arbor Day is about celebrating our urban forest and the important role trees play in making our communities safer, healthier, and more vibrant. This is the kickoff to tree-planting season in the Pacific Northwest. Although this year we will not be planting trees together in person, we have planned a whole week of virtual activities and events! 

Storytelling Workshop (Virtual)
Tuesday, October 27
6:30 - 7:30 pm
Free, space is limited
Register here

People throughout history and across cultures have used storytelling as a way to capture personal and shared experiences, pass along critical knowledge, and inspire others to act. Stories about trees can connect us to each other, our past, and a vision of a better future. Led by Jourdan Keith, naturalist, educator, and Seattle's Civic Poet, this free workshop will explore a creative approach toward understanding and celebrating the urban forest. 

Already have a great tree story? Share it with us! Email your urban forest memories, love letters to your favorite Seattle tree, and more to TreeAmbassador@Seattle.gov. *All submissions subject to review for appropriate and non-political content.  

Check out the Growing Old podcast to hear more voices from around Seattle sharing their stories, experiences, and a vision for a future where both humans and trees can grow old together.
