Once again the Arboretum partners are collaborating with the Student Conservation Association (SCA) to organize a work-service event at Seattle's most treasured park.

WHERE: Meet at Crabapple Meadow, just south of the Graham Visitors Center.

WHAT: Volunteers will restore the Arboretum through planting, mulching, removing invasive species, and maintaining trails.

BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, and bring a reusable water bottle. The event will take place rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather!

PROVIDED: Coffee and snacks will be provided for all volunteers, as well as project materials and gloves.

SIGN UP: Register on EventBrite at bit.ly/EarthDayArboretum.

AFTER PARTY: Join us from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at Crabapple Meadow for a fun after-party!!
We will have some sweet giveaways from the Arboretum and the SCA! The Movin' 92.5 music van will be there, cranking out tunes for the gathering. Dante’s Inferno Dogs will be on-site selling delicious and very affordable hot dogs (vegan and gluten-free options too!).

SPONSORS: Clif Bar, Starbucks, Caffe Ladro, MOViN' 92.5
