Tips on How to Make this Your Best Canopy Awards Yet

Work out Your Arrival Game Plan: Dock5 provides plenty of transit options. Free parking available in the Neal Place lot or on the street. it’s a short walk from the Red Lineat the NoMA-Gallaudet stop, and there are plenty of bike racks are available. And great news! Dock5 is completely accessible with elevator and ramp access.

Study Up on Timing: Doors at Dock5 will open at 6:00 PM sharp, where you’ll be treated to refreshing drinks and can meander through the Silent Auction Preview. Make sure you bid your best! We’ll have plenty of cool prizes – places such as Potomac Riverboat Company, Ingleside Vineyard, The Kennedy Center, and the Washingtion Nationals are auctioning off items, and all the proceeds help us restore, enhance, and protect the tree canopy of the nation’s capital. The full party begins a 7:00 PM and we’ll shower our honorees with their awards around 8:00 PM.

Join in on the Social Media Action: Be sure to tag your snaps, tweets, stories, and posts with #CanopyAwards and feel free to follow us on Twitter and Instagram @CaseyTrees and Facebook @CaseyTreesDC. Share those goofy photobooth shots, take photos with folks you typically see in hiking boots, and show off your silent auction win for the all the internet to see!

Get a Feel for the Event: Did you know we have recaps from all past Canopy Awards? The First Annual feels like yesterday! And remember when we trekked to Blind Whino? All that action and more are in the recaps.
