Seattle Parks and Recreation, the University of Washington and the Arboretum Foundation will host a public meeting on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at the Graham Visitor Center from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. to discuss the continuing implementation of the Arboretum Master Plan.
This plan ensures the Washington Park Arboretum will effectively fulfill three primary purposes: conservation, recreation, and education. The Graham Visitor Center is located in the Arboretum at 2300 Arboretum Drive E.
The public is invited and encouraged to join in the ongoing design and provide input on various projects including the implementation of Cascadia and New Zealand focal forests, ridge top trail elements and interpretive wayfinding signs.
Contributions from public and private sources provide for these improvements. The Parks and Green Spaces Levy funding and the substantial support from the Arboretum Foundation take the city another step toward achieving the vision for this incredible resource in the heart of Seattle.
