This year's celebration brings the event to Mt. Scott Park in Southeast Portland. Conveniently accessible by bus lines, bicycles and foot (plenty of parking, too), this event will feature multi-cultural performances, music and storytelling, to celebrate the many communities of Portland and our many wordly connections to trees. We will also present the Bill Naito Community Trees Award to one individual and one group for their volunteer work in support of Portland's urban forest.
Beneath towering Douglas firs, enjoy food from local vendors Tierra del Sol and Sisters Fusion, and participate in activities for the whole family. Explore natural objects from burls to bee hives, participate in an ecological scavenger hunt, print botanical cards, learn about the history of Portland's Urban Forest and connect with our many community and environmental partners. Additionally, we will be giving away tree seedlings, offering bucket truck rides into the tree canopy and demonstrating the art and science of tree climbing!
Calling all Neighborhood Tree Stewards and Neighborhood Tree Teams!
Please join us from 10am-12:30pm on Arbor Day for a special workshop and discussion over lunch. Connect with old friends and neighbors! For registration and details click here.
Our story project continues! We want to hear from you, so send your tree story to email@example.com. In 500 words or less, please describe a tree that has been significant to you and why. Be sure to include information about type of tree (if you know) or names by which the tree was known. Also, where the tree was located. Feel free to send photos, too!
We plan to share these stories with the general public on our Urban Forestry website and as part of our greater art project, The Year in Tree Stories. By submitting your stories and/or photos, you consent to use of these by the City of Portland for any lawful purpose, including, for example, promotion of Urban Forestry programs, publicity, illustration, advertising and web content.
For more information, please contact Nik Desai at firstname.lastname@example.org.
