The Canopy Awards

Each year Casey Trees honors five individuals and groups who have gone above and beyond to enhance and protect the District’s tree cover. These awards were created to recognize leaders who have dedicated their time, passion and talent to achieve some of D.C.’s most crucial canopy goals. Past honorees have included Mayor Anthony Williams, landscape architect Oehme van Sweden, Councilmember Mary Cheh and other distinguished volunteers, board members and staff from partner organizations. This year the awards will be presented on April 26 at The Fifth Annual Canopy Awards — our annual celebration filled with food, drink, musical performances and special guests.
