Celebrate Trees! Earth Month



Celebrate Trees! Earth Month Bainbridge Island 2017

The goal of Celebrate Trees! Earth Month Bainbridge Island is to raise awareness and encourage involvement for Arbor Day and Earth Day, and to inspire all to protect our trees, our environment, and our planet. Celebrate Trees! Happens all throughout April offers something for everyone, children and adults of all abilities.  Events are listed for the active weed puller, the quiet reader, the inquisitive tree hugger, the reflective Earth lover, the conscientious gardener, the Earth cookie-eating child (or adult), or the community citizen looking for ways to live more sustainably. You can even email our Island trees!

We hope you will join us!
