Our Living City team has hit its stride this summer. With the help of dozens of amazing volunteers, we’ve distributed over 10,000 trees, knocked on thousands of doors, and given away loads of green infrastructure adaptations like splash guards and redirects. Now, we’re gearing up for an exciting September chalk full of events. Trust us, you won’t want to miss out!

Event #1 – Final Green Infrastructure Workshop: The Launch!

What: At the fourth and final workshop in our green infrastructure series, we’re launching our community guidebook to share lessons learned over the course of the last year working in Britannia, Belltown, and Crystal Bay. Have you every wondered how to engage your community in environmental issues? Do you have questions about what behind-the-scenes organizing looks like? These questions and others will be answered at our launch celebration and discussion.

When: Sunday, September 15, 2019, from 3-5:30pm
