Green Kirkland Partnership

people working in park

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

Join us at our planting events! 
planting with shovelIf April showers bring May flowers, then Fall rains bring….. planting time! Fall is here and with it comes the time to plant new native plants in all the areas that volunteers like you have been clearing, mulching, and maintaining all year. Kirkland’s Arbor Day event, Saturday Oct 15th, at O.O. Denny Park, kicks off the planting season for the Green Kirkland Partnership. Join us at a volunteer event this fall and winter to help re-fill Kirkland forests with native trees, shrubs and groundcovers! 

Below are our two big planting event but there are LOTS of planting opportunities through Oct.-Dec.: 

Arbor Day on October 15th 10am-2pm at O.O. Denny Park
Green Kirkland Day on November 12th 10am-2pm at Juanita Bay Park

 

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).
