TreeHug PDX Returns to Prove Portland is the Greenest City
Thursday, July 16, 2015
Everyone is invited to attend the tree hug event at Hoyt Arboretum where there will be live music, bucket truck rides, a climbing wall, and games in addition to the actual tree hug.
TreeHug PDX is an event that focuses on conserving forest life and educating individuals about nature. The event is created and ran by people from nonprofit organizations such as Treecology, Hoyt Arboretum Friends, Portland Parks & Recreation, Urban Forestry, City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services, and Friends of Trees and Ascending Giants.
The tree hugging event will bring locals together in an epic way that demonstrates a community is not only between people but between people and their environnment.
“I can’t think of a better way to show how much Portlanders love trees than by initiating the Cascadia Cup of tree hugging. I’m going out on a limb here and predicting that our huggers will turn out in huge numbers,” said Portland Parks & Recreation Director Mike Abbaté.
Don’t miss out on a chance to prove to Seattle and Vancouver that Portland really is dedicated to making the world a greener place. RSVP HERE.
TreeHugPDX, Hoyt Arboretum, near the intersection of SW Kingston Ave and SW Knights Boulevard. Saturday, July 18, from 12pm - 3pm.
