Join the Green Seattle Partnership to celebrate and restore Seattle’s beautiful forested parks for the 8th annual Green Seattle Day on Saturday, November 2nd from 10 am to 2 pm (event times may vary by site)!
Green Seattle Day is a meaningful way to connect with nature and create a healthy and vibrant community by planting native trees and shrubs in a park near you. The event takes place in 17 parks city-wide. Seattle’s own West Duwamish Greenbelt is this year’s Green Seattle Day’s central hub site.
The Green Seattle Partnership is a collaborative venture between the City of Seattle, non-profit partners, and thousands of committed volunteers that seek to create a sustainable network of healthy forested parklands by removing invasive species and replanting with native shrubs and trees. Without a coordinated effort, Seattle is at risk of losing 70% of its forests in just 20 years.
Green Seattle Day is a celebration of Seattle’s 2500 acres of forested parks, the committed neighbors who care for them, and the kick-off event for the 2013-2014 restoration planting season. We supply all tools and supplies. So, grab a water bottle, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to have fun in the forest!
