Go Green for 2021!

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Help give 2,000 baby giant sequoias a fighting chance this Oregon Arbor Day by providing them room to grow.

Giant sequoias work hard to clean air and will also make our community more attractive, livable and prosperous. They will be planted in our shared public areas such as parks and street medians, as well as in private spaces like schools, local businesses and homes. Finding the right place for each of these young giants will take time so we are giving them some room to grow by planting the trees in larger pots.

These young trees are the cornerstone of the 2,021 for 2021 project which will boost our urban forest and turn hosting the IAAF World Track and Field Championships into a more sustainable opportunity for the southern Willamette Valley. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. So please, join us.

This is a family-friendly event – no experience necessary, just come dressed for the weather. Please RSVP so we can be sure to have plenty of tools, gloves and refreshments.
