Urban Foresters Heading to Pacific Northwest
The Puget Sound will form a picturesque backdrop to the 9th National Urban Forest Conference in Seattle, Washington, August 31-September 3, 1999. The conference will use the region's Mountains to Sound Greenway to illustrate the urban-rural interface issues confronting many of the nation's communities.And it will explore the ripple effect that rebuilding this Pacific Northwest gateway's natural landscape has had on the ecology of greater metropolitan Seattle. The conference will include pre-conference workshops, educational field trips, and the Global ReLeaf Banquet.
