 volunteer with wheelbarrowThe Green Kirkland Partnership's goal of restoring natural areas in the City of Kirkland's park system is made possible by the countless volunteers that are involved with our program. These volunteers donate their time removing ivy from our parks, entering data in our office, recruiting more volunteers at outreach events, and much more! Read below to learn about the various ways to volunteer with our program. 

Restoration Volunteers:

Volunteer with the Green Kirkland Partnership at a volunteer restoration event. There are events in parks throughout Kirkland during the week AND during the weekend. Volunteers at restoration events spend their time removing invasive plants, like Himalayan blackberry and English ivy, spreading mulch and planting native trees, shrubs and ground covers, No experience is needed to volunteer at an event, simply dress for the weather, bring water and a snack and we will provide everything else.

Our Green Kirkland Stewards program is set up to train volunteers who are interested in taking a leadership role in the restoration activities of a park. Our staff gives these volunteers the training and support needed to lead their own volunteer events and to conduct ongoing restoration in City-owned parks. 

If you are interested in learning more about the Steward program, please read the Steward Volunteer Position Description. We will be hosting a New Steward Training in early 2017. If you are interested in being notified about this training please or have any questions about the Steward Program, please contact us at (425-587-3306 or greenkirkland@kirklandwa.gov )
