Hug a tree!

Last year, Portland set the Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously hugging trees in one minute. 

This Saturday, join us at 2 pm at Hoyt Arboretum, and help Portland defend that title! Grab your friends and family and ensure our place as the top tree-hugging community in the world.

After you have hugged a tree, stay at the Arboretum to enjoy the warm summer day with picnicking, live music, games, and learning facts about our environment. 

Sponsored by the Bureau of Environmental Services, Friends of Trees, Hoyt Arboretum, Portland Parks & Recreation, and Treecology, Inc., the event is free and open to the public.
