Make a difference by planting native trees on the Wenatchee campus next to the 9th Street parking lot on the west-end of Sexton Hall.  Please wear your mask, bring gloves, and social distance, so you can participate in our celebration of trees!  We will have pastries, hear student poems, and then learn more about the fascinating diversity of trees on campus. Thanks to our partners Derby Canyon Natives, Sustainable Wenatchee, and ASWVC!
