Hug A Tree At Hoyt

Hug a Tree at Hoyt!Tree Hug

Last year nearly 1,000 Portlanders like you gathered at Hoyt Arboretum to have some fun in the sun. And set a Guinness World Record.

This year, we’re doing it again. Bigger. Better. Huggier.

WHO? You and Your Friends

WHEN? July 12, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

WHAT?  Setting a Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously hugging trees in one place!

And... Picnicking. Listening to live music. Playing games. Learning about the environment, sustainability, trees and more!

Why? Because Portland needs to show the world that we are the most tree hugging place around! Challengers have already attempted to break our tree hugging record, and there will undoubtedly be more. We need to put this record out of reach of the rest of the world!

How? Pre-registration is encouraged. Please sign up here.

Where? Hoyt Arboretum in Washington Park, near the intersection of Kingston and Knights Blvd

Tree Hug brought to you by Hoyt Arboretum Friends, Treecology, Portland Parks & Recreation, and Friends of Trees!
