From the woods of Bainbridge Island, to the schoolyards of Seattle, to the halls of the State Capitol building, we’re working across the region to create environmental change. Students and teachers leave our programs knowing they have the power to solve environmental issues and make a positive impact on the planet, today. Join us to celebrate the successes of the past year and to support the work we still have ahead.
Dinner in the Woods wouldn’t be possible without the incredible passion, leadership and many hours of hard work from our 2020 Host Committee.
