Yesterday (Sunday, March 6, 2011), a local group of plant enthusiasts, led by plant lover Meghan Fuller, hung 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 the tree it identifies.
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.
Many thanks to photographer Nat Rocket for sharing the following images of the hanging of the hearts:

Thank you, Nat!
