Here’s a simple, fun thing you can do this Saturday, July 12: Join the world’s largest tree hug at Hoyt Arboretum.
Last year, Portland set the official record. Now, we need your help to defend that title and help celebrate all the new trees planted in Portland recently.
When: Saturday, July 12, 2:00 p.m.
Where: Hoyt Arboretum, SW Knight Blvd and SW Kingston Blvd.
Who: You, your friends, and family (kids make great huggers!)
