CanopyFest: Virtual Runs, In Person Tree Walks, and a Nature Challenge

Happy almost Earth Day! Last year we didn’t get to celebrate and this year we’re shaking things up while keeping things safe. Instead of limiting the celebration to Arbor Day itself, we’re celebrating our urban canopy and the people that restore, enhance, and protect it all month long during Canopy Fest! 

Tree Walks | We’re back baby! We’re dipping our toe into hosting events again with safe, distanced, COVID-friendly tree walks throughout the city with our knowledgeable staff.

City Nature Challenge | Casey Trees and Friends of Kingman and Heritage Island are joining forces for the City Nature Challenge! We will host “Outdoor Office Hours” in the meadow on Kingman Island to guide you on how to identify species that live on the islands.

Earth Day 5k | Little Sesame and Casey Trees are hosting a virtual 5K on Earth Day. Run through your neighborhood and enjoy the beautiful blossoms that surround you! 






And the piece de resistance of course is:

Arbor Day Delivered | On the best day of the year, celebrate in style with Arbor Day Delivered! $200 gets you a specially curated three-course meal from our friends at Little Sesame as well as a one of a kind, event only merch pack so you can picnic anywhere.


Merch Only Option | Don’t live within Little Sesame’s delivery distance? Still want to support our mission and tree heroes? For $100 you can buy just the swag pack and get in on the festivities.



No matter how you celebrate, know that each and every purchase of a meal, merch pack, or event ticket goes directly back to our mission of restoring, enhancing, and protecting the trees of DC. We can’t do our work without you and we’re so grateful for your support.
