Annual Meeting

All Arboretum Foundation Members Welcome!

Wednesday, June 16, 2021
5 to 6:15 p.m.

Virtual Meeting
Hosted on Zoom; FREE for Members!

Each June, the Arboretum Foundation hosts its annual meeting, and all Foundation members are invited to attend.

The event includes a slideshow about the Foundation’s fiscal-year activities and achievements from our Board and staff, an update from our partners at UW Botanic Gardens and Seattle Parks and Recreation, the presentation of the Volunteer Legacy Award, and the election of new members to our Board of Directors.

Normally, the event is hosted in-person at the Graham Visitors Center and features a light reception on the terrace. Due to the pandemic, however, our 2021 Annual Meeting (like last year’s) will be online.

Registration coming soon!
