West Seattle is near many wonderful green natural spaces. Some of these include areas with urban forests. Did you know that urban forests are an intricate and vital part of Seattle’s natural space? Urban parks and forests also contribute to the health of communities and neighborhoods as a common space shared by all kinds of people. But, did you also know that your Local Urban Forests need you?
Join the Green Seattle Partnership on Saturday, November 8th, as we kick off planting season and celebrate Seattle’s urban forests and all they do for us with a day of volunteerism in 21 parks throughout the City.
The 9th Annual Green Seattle Day is a perfect time to roll up your sleeves and have a lasting impact on your community that you will be able to watch grow. This volunteer opportunity is a great way to see a physical difference in your community. Seola park, the Orchard Street Ravine, and Westcrest Park will all have volunteers out to help restore and conserve our urban forested areas.
This event is Green Seattle’s biggest event of the year. Green Seattle Day is a great chance for first-time and long-time volunteers to help grow the forest in their own city by planting trees and other plants in city parks.
This year our main site will meet at the Rainier Beach Community Center (lunch included after planting), but there are 17 other locations around the city that need volunteers, so check out the full list here, pick your lucky park, and sign sign up now so that we can plan the best event for everyone.
To join us at the main site, sign up to volunteer at the East Duwamish Greenbelt, Kubota Gardens, Lakeridge Park, or Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands, and meet at the Rainier Beach Community Center at 9am.
Green Seattle Day is great for all ages. We’ll bring the gloves, tools, and all of the plants, you bring the helping hands! Coffee and snacks provided at all sites, so register early so that we can have enough for everyone. Please dress for the weather, and wear sturdy shoes that can get wet and a little dirty. This is our biggest party of the year and we want you there! More information available at www.greenseattle.org.
