The Fifth Annual Canopy Awards

April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

The Canopy Awards is Casey Trees’ flagship event that highlights the accomplishments of those working to boost and protect D.C.’s tree canopy, raises funds and gets you out for a night of fun.

In past years, we got campy under the canopy, celebrated our beautiful parks and followed Alice into the canopy. How will we honor our urban forest and its inspiring tree heroes this year?

Join us in the City of Trees on Arbor Day Eve — Thursday, April 26, 2018 — for food, drinks, games, silent auction, live music and more.

Simply can’t wait for April 26? You can relive the excitement of Canopy Awards past: check out our highlight reel and peruse our website.

All raised funds benefit Casey Trees.
