We are celebrating a major milestone in our goal to plant 1 Million Trees by 2020 in King County here. Counting the current planting season, the growing coalition of cities, nonprofits, schools, and volunteers has so far planted 705,840 trees. Trees do so much for us – they reduce stress, improve water quality, clean the air and cool neighborhoods. They’re not bad to look at either!
To celebrate 705,840 new trees now growing in our region – King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks is hosting a photo contest to highlight how much we love and appreciate trees. Share photos of your favorite tree/s for a chance to win a 1 Million Trees mug and bag.
Here’s how to enter: Step 1 – Get outside through March 15 and hang out with your favorite tree. Step 2 – Snap a photo of your favorite tree/trees. Step 3 – Share your photo!
