Help Nature Consortium Restore West Duwamish Greenbelt

The Nature Consortium is seeking volunteers who want to help restore the local greenbelts here in West Seattle.

The Nature Consortium crew are active every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 am through 2:00 pm at various locations within the  West Duwamish Greenbelt.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in the city of Seattle, stretching from West Seattle to Burien. It includes 182 acres of park land and another 300 acres in privately owned land. Foxes, red-legged frogs, hawks, and bald eagles are found within the greenbelt. Each work party begins with a short informal forest ecology workshop, and we spend the remainder of the time performing various restoration activities, including planting native trees and shrubs, removing invasive species, mulching previously-planted areas, and more. To connect art into this project we hire local musicians to perform in the woods during many work parties.

For more information and to sign up to help in this urban forest restoration project, contact Lizzie Jackson (Petrin), Restoration Project Coordinator, phone 206-923-0853, or email at and check out Nature Consortium’s website –
