1 down, 999,999 to go!

Today, King County Executive Dow Constantine launched the 1 Million Trees campaign, an ambitious project to plant one million trees across King County by 2020 to combat climate change, promote healthy forests, and make our communities healthier and more resilient for all residents, be they people, fish, birds, or orcas!

In addition to kids from White Center Heights Elementary, Cascade Middle School, and other youth from a homeschool program, the event featured remarks by partners including Forterra, The Nature Conservancy, Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, The Nature Consortium, and The Boeing Company.

And we’re just getting started…so keep in touch! Sign up between now and May 13 for campaign updates, and you will be entered in a drawing to win 2 tickets to a concert at Marymoor Park!
