Green Seattle Partnership

The Green Seattle Partnership coordinates restoration projects to care for our urban forest and bring people into the parks to build community through hands-on volunteerism. The Partnership was started in 2004 to respond to a critical threat facing the City’s forested parks. Without intervention, we risked losing 70% of the tree cover in our parks in just 20 years. With thousands of volunteers getting involved every year, dedicated staff with City agencies and partners, and professional crews to help out on our toughest sites, we are making great strides, but the work is far from done. Join us! Volunteer in your neighborhood park, help us get the word out to more people, and continue the effort at home in your own yard by removing invasive weeds and planting native trees and shrubs. We’re going to need everyone’s help to keep the Emerald City green!
