Where else but Portland? Who else but YOU? Whether you’re a daily tree hugger or if your bite is worse than your (tree) bark, join us for a chance to set a new WORLD RECORD!
Hoyt Arboretum and Treecology are organizing an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most people simultaneously hugging trees in one place at one time. The hug will take place at 2:00 pm at Hoyt Arboretum on July 20, 2013. Please consider public transportation to Hoyt. Due to strict rules from Guiness World Records, we would appreciate it if you’d pre-register for this event so our count is accurate.
SIGN UP HERE: Hug A Tree At Hoyt – Portland’s World Record Tree Hug.
Portland Timbers mascot Timber Joey & Friends of Trees’ Garry Oak will be on hand to help hug and set the world record. Need any further incentives? All tree hug participants will receive a coupon for a complimentary beverage from one of several participating local breweries. Register online now to sign up, and you can choose to purchase a commemorative t-shirt! All proceeds will support Hoyt Arboretum. And the day isn’t just about hugs; we’ll have fun activities and tree information on site for adults and kids.
