About the Green Seattle Partnership
The Green Seattle Partnership is a unique public/private partnership between the City of Seattle and the Cascade Land Conservancy.
"Creating a sustainable network of healthy forested parklands throughout Seattle, supported by an aware, engaged community."
The Green Seattle Partnership is a unique public/private partnership between the City of Seattle and the Forterra (formerly Cascade Land Conservancy). The Partnership was formed in 2004 by memorandum of agreement between the City of Seattle and the Forterra (formerly Cascade Land Conservancy). Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seattle Office of Sustainability and Environment, and Seattle Public Utilities are the three key City departments serving in the Green Seattle Partnership. The partnership is governed by a 9-member Executive Council appointed by the Mayor.
The Executive Council includes representatives from the community, Forterra Board, and directors of the key City of Seattle departments. Most importantly, the Green Seattle Partnership includes thousands of community volunteers, who, with the support of businesses and nonprofits, actively work to restore and maintain Seattle’s forested parklands.
