Golden Streets 2020

Registration Now Open

If you are property manager at a commercial property located in the Golden Triangle neighborhood, we invite you to sign up for our annual tree box landscaping contest now.

Last year’s event was a big success, and we are excited to continue our partnership with Smithsonian Gardens to present the theme Pollinator Habitat and related programming. We can all help urban pollinators thrive by providing them with more habitats. By participating in the program, you will be helping to create sustainable and colorful pollinator habitats across the Golden Triangle neighborhood. Learn more about the 2019 Golden Streets winners here.

All pollinator habitats will be featured in the Golden Streets marketing campaign, which will increase the visibility of your property.

The winners will be selected by an expert panel of judges, including Smithsonian Gardens horticulturist James Gagliardi, Amelia Draper of NBC 4, Bradford McKee of Landscape Architecture Magazine and Luis Marmol of Dumbarton Oaks.
