View Green Lake Tree Walk in a larger map
An online tree walk map is now available for Green Lake Park.
The map was created by the new Green Lake/Wallingford Tree Ambassadors, Penny Kriese and Jessica Roundy. It contains information about some of the more notable trees along the Green Lake path, such as tree names, photos, location with GPS coordinates, tree size, habitat, and some tidbits of tree history. You can follow the map on your mobile phone or find a link to a printable version of the map here.
The Tree Ambassador program is an outreach project of the Green Seattle Partnership. It empowers volunteers to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. Program work is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program. Tree Ambassadors are trained in the basics of urban forestry, leadership and community organizing.
The Green Lake/Wallingford Tree Ambassadors will be planning more tree walks and hosting events such as tree plantings and tree care projects. Follow their Facebook page for more information.
