Green Seattle Day 2014
Our biggest party of the year is coming up and we want you there! Join the Green Seattle Partnership to kickoff planting season and celebrate Seattle’s beautiful forested parks.
The 9th annual Green Seattle Day is Saturday, November 8th!
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 21 parks city-wide. Find a park you love in the list below (more links coming soon) and register now to help us plan a great event!
To join us at the Rainier Beach Community Center, please sign up to volunteer at the East Duwamish Greenbelt, Kubota Gardens, Lakeridge Park, or Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetland. Lunch is provided back at the community center at 12:30 after the planting is done, and volunteers from all sites are welcome to join us for that.
*This year our event "hub" will be the Rainier Beach Community Center, where volunteers will meet at 9am and head out to one of four parks nearby - East Duwamish Greenbelt, Kubota Gardens, Lakeridge Park, or Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands. At noon, we'll finish up and go back to the community center for a catered Ethiopian buffet lunch and other festivities.
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 kickoff event for the 2014-2015 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!
