Green Kirkland Partnership

The Green Kirkland Partnership works to engage the local community in the restoration and care of natural areas in City parks.

Green Kirkland Day 2016
Green Kirkland Day McAuliffe ParkThank you for joining us on Kirkland’s second annual Green Kirkland Day, Saturday November 12th, a day to celebrate all the restoration work accomplished by our wonderful volunteers. An impressive 115 volunteers gathered at Juanita Bay, Juanita Beach, O. O. Denny, Crestwoods, and McAuliffe Parks to remove invasive plants, plant more than 600 native trees, shrubs and ground covers, and spread mulch!  Even though unsafe windy conditions forced us to cancel the events at Crestwoods and O.O. Denny Parks, Green Kirkland Day 2016 was a resounding success, and your efforts will help our Kirkland forests and other natural areas grow healthier and more resilient.

How did Himalayan blackberry get here?

himalayan blackberryWe get asked the question "how did invasive blackberries get to Kirkland" all the time at volunteer events. Check out this great radio segment that KUOW did to answer that exact question. Listen to or read the article and then join us at an upcoming volunteer event to get up close and personal with some Himalayan blackberry (if the berries are ripe, we encourage you to eat them).
