CITIZEN FORESTER IN THE NEWS - MARGARET MISSIAEN
Kudos to Casey Trees Citizen Forester Margaret Missiaen, recipient of a Capitol Hill Community Achievement Award.
Margaret epitomizes what one person can do to protect and grow their neighborhood's tree canopy. A co-founder of Trees for Capitol Hill, Margaret has helped plant hundreds of trees and care for countless more throughout Capitol Hill. Just this past fall, Margaret led an inspiring tree tour of South Capitol Hill’s big parks and has served as a guest speaker at Casey Trees.
Many thanks to Margaret and her husband Ed for being educators and tireless advocates for trees in Capitol Hill and throughout the District. The honor is well-deserved.
Margaret will receive her award at the Capitol Hill Community Foundation’s benefit dinner on Thursday, May 6. Click here for information related to the event.
