Event description


The Canopy Awards is Casey Trees’ flagship event that highlights the accomplishments of those working to boost and protect D.C.’s tree canopy, raises funds, and gets you out for a night of fun.

Rest assured, the Canopy Awards is no stuffy affair. In 2015, we created Camp Casey Trees, where guest got “campy under the canopy”. In 2016, we highlighted our efforts in D.C.’s parks by turning Dock5 — a warehouse — into a full on indoor park.

So what’s this year’s theme? You’ll have to come to the party to find out. We’ll give you a few clues here and there, but you won’t want to be late for this date.

Check out our highlight reel, scroll through the photos and mark your calendars — Thursday, April 27, 2017.

All raised funds benefit Casey Trees.
