On Sunday, March 6, 2011, a  local group of plant enthusiasts, led by plant lover Meghan Fuller, will hang 128 hand-made “ID bracelets” on the trees around the walking path at Green Lake Park.

Each sign is about 1’ x 1’, made of wood, heart-shaped, and hand-painted and decorated with the Latin and common name of each tree.

The “I Heart Trees!” project is meant to inspire and encourage visitors to the park to learn about the world around them. The project is temporary and has been approved by Seattle Parks and Recreation.

Levi Fuller, Krista Hartrich, Vince Galloway, Mary Growney, Cathy Shea, Leon Shea, Darcy Shea, Sloane Shea, Libby Larson, Gavin Gregory, Crystal Gregory, Patty O’Hara, Austin King, Trish Donnel, Creagh Miller, Blair Neumann, Jessica Gibson, and Sara Lawrence all contributed to the project, and project organizer Meghan Fuller also sends thanks out to Arthur Lee Jacobson and Daly’s Paint.

    Why the need to make it temporary and take them down ? I’d think people would enjoy seeing them stay up.
