Earth Day Service in Seattle
Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Join the Student Conservation Association for our 10th Annual Earth Day service event and 30th celebration of conservation service to the Puget Sound area at Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle!
Attending will be Liz Putnam, SCA’s Founder and the first conservationist to receive the Presidential Citizens Medal – the nation’s second-highest civilian award!
The Arboretum is a hidden gem on the shores of Lake Washington. Jointly managed by the University of Washington and the City of Seattle, the Arboretum's 230 acres include a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else. Volunteers will prune back overgrown vegetation, remove invasive plant species, and re-vegetate areas with native plants.
The work of SCA members and volunteers has provided $250,000 of value to the park over the past 10 years of Earth Day service projects. This year SCA Northwest is pleased to be celebrating 30 years of conservation service to the Puget Sound. Earth Day will kick off a year of service and engagement events for our past members and their families.
