You’re invited! Join the Port of Seattle, its partners, and community members as we plant native trees to restore our urban forests from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023.

Participants will plant nearly 750 trees and shrubs at a Port site previously overtaken by invasive blackberry and ivy. The trees planted will increase native forest cover with a native shrub understory.

The Port will provide snacks, hot drinks, gloves, and tools. Clothes and shoes appropriate for working outdoors are recommended. This event is family-friendly, and no experience is necessary.
