Green Seattle Partnership Event: 11/7-11/13

Roots to Learning is excited to support Green Seattle Days as a way to encourage students and adults to get involved in their local environment and learn how to better support the local ecology for the benefit of us all!

We invite you to participate in one week of nature exploration, learning, and celebration of Seattle’s urban forest. Seattle’s urban forest coexists with our city.
