Planting Trees Across the Country

Last week we were excited to welcome Nikola Agatic, who rode into town after completing a cross-county bicycle trip with stops for tree planting along the way.

We joined community members to help him plant a tree in Railroad Park, which for trivia buffs was planted by producers from Sleepless in Seattle as a thank you to the Westlake neighborhood after filming.

Seattle was the perfect place to the end trek, as an Arbor Day Tree City USA for 30 years and one of the best cities in the country for biking.
