The Green Kirkland Partnership is powered by dedicated restoration volunteers, volunteer Green Kirkland Stewards, hardworking staff and amazing partners. Since 2005 we have been creating positive changes in the natural areas of Kirkland. Many thanks to all the volunteers who have spent time pulling ivy, grubbing out blackberry roots, and planting native trees, shrubs and ground covers. Below are a few measurements of their hard work and accomplishments!

Green Kirkland Partnership Over the Years
Kirkland Parks and Natural Areas Maps:
These maps show the parks we work in and the areas that have been enrolled into restoration (i.e. cleared of invasive plants for the first time) in purple, and where we will expand our restoration efforts in the future in yellow. All maps are PDFs sized 1.5MB to 3.5 MB
Green Kirkland Parks with Stewardship Plans:
Some of the parks have Stewardship Plans. These plans help inform us of a park's history and plan for its restoration and maintenance.
