Canopy Climbers in Volunteer Park


LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Camille Mauceri, 11, Dave Bayard, center, and Silvia Mauceri, 7, scale a 110-ft. Red Oak tree with Canopy Climbers at Volunteer Park Sunday, August 25, 2013. Owner Dave Bayard, a full-time arborist for Seattle City Light, graduated as an English Literature major, but began his current career by responding to an ad for tree climbers in the paper. Canopy Climbers operates once a month from April to November, and is open to ages 6 and up.
