Though she was not a West Seattleite, Plant Amnesty/TreePAC founder Cass Turnbull‘s local/regional greenspace activism led many here to mourn her sudden death last month at age 65. (Here’s her Seattle Times obituary.) We promised to share the news when a memorial was announced. And the announcement arrived in the WSB inbox late today:
The Life and Times of Cass Turnbull
Please join us as we honor her on Saturday, March 25th, 2017
1 pm – 2 pm (reception to follow)
Shoreline Community College Theater
16101 Greenwood Ave N., Shoreline
A map of the campus can be found here.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to PlantAmnesty or TreePAC.
Most recently, Ms. Turnbull had a high profile in the campaign to keep the city from selling the Myers Way Parcels in southeast West Seattle.
