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
(Building #1600)
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.

    So sad she’s gone. She was an amazing woman.

    Yes she was plant advocate nonpareil.  And funny to boot!

Sorry, comment time is over.
