Casey Trees Out and About This Weekend

We will participate in two community events this weekend: PARK(ing) Day and the H Street Festival.

On Friday we will transform a parking space into a miniature park to promote the environmental, social and financial benefits of trees as part of PARK(ing) Day 2011. Find us at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue and Q Street NW from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PARK(ing) Day is an annual event that brings together activists, artists and citizens to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into public parks. Our PARK(ing) Day site will feature an abstract forest with oversized tags touting all the benefits trees bring to D.C. residents. Tomorrow, we'll be the premier D.C. group converting street space to green space.

On Saturday visit our booth at the H Street Festival between noon and 6 p.m. The festival will take place on H Street between 8th and 14th Streets NE. Come take your sticker picture, learn more about our programs, or purchase one of our t-shirts.

Casey Trees staff members will be onsite at both locations to chat, answer questions and distribute tree literature. We hope to see you this Friday and Saturday!

That's a great idea - more cities need to "adopt" a tree and bring the green back into the city.
