Friends of Trees are Coming!

Friend of Trees is coming to the Foster-Powell, Creston-Kenilworth, Mt. Scott-Arleta, and Reed neighborhoods on Saturday 9-February to plant around 130 trees.

Following the planting there is a warm potluck lunch for all volunteers provided by the hosting neighborhood groups — it’s a small way we say “thank you” for all your hard work!
