Crew Lends Hand With Planting Trees At Seattle Parks
Over the weekend, the Washington crew program helped plant trees at Magnuson Park in the Sand Point neighborhood of Seattle. The charitable project was in support of Green Seattle Day and was organized by Robert Squires of the men's crew team.
It was, as Squires pointed out, "our turn to give back to the Lake Washington ecosystem which has given us this beautiful place to live and train."
According to Green Seattle Day information, without a coordinated effort, Seattle is at risk of losing 70 percent of its forests in just 20 years. The Green Seattle Partnership is aiming to reverse the trend by mobilizing thousands of volunteers to restore 2,500 acres by 2025.
