NE Seattle Tree Walk September 29th 10 – Noon

Discover the trees that you pass every day! You are invited to join neighbors and friends for a tree walk of a Northeast Seattle neighborhood to learn more about the trees that live among us!

  • Meet at 10am Saturday morning, September 29th, at the parking lot of the Lake City Presbyterian Church, corner of 40th Ave NE and NE 123rd St.
  • The 2-hour walk will help you discover over 60 different trees and cover a half mile walking area.

Hosted by the Northgate/Matthews Beach Tree Ambassadors. The Tree Ambassador program empowers residents to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. The program is a project of the Green Seattle Partnership, a collaboration between the City of Seattle and Forterra (Cascade Land Conservancy) and is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program.

    I went on this walk. There were about 75-80 of us! We were quite a sight, filling the streets. It was well organized, informative, and – bonus – there was cider and cookies. And amazingly, we returned to the starting point at exactly noon, as advertised. Fun event!
