Join us on Saturday, March 5th, 10am-2pm to learn about becoming a Green Kirkland Steward.

REGISTER TO ATTEND
Attendees will spend the morning learning about the Green Kirkland Partnership, the Steward Program and the basic ideas behind restoration. During lunch the group will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of current Stewards who are working to restore forests and natural areas in Kirkland. After lunch, the group will head outside to get hands-on training in leading volunteers and removing invasive plants.
Once the training is completed, attendees will have the option to become a Green Kirkland Steward, pick a park to work in, and set up a site visit with Green Kirkland staff. We are currently focused on recruiting new Stewards for Watershed Park, Everest Park and Crestwoods Park but are open to Stewards interested in other parks in the City.
What’s a Green Kirkland Steward?
Green Kirkland Stewards are trained volunteers who take on a leadership role in the restoration activities in a City of Kirkland natural area park. These volunteers are given the training and support needed to lead their own volunteer events and do ongoing restoration activities in their park. Green Kirkland Steward have different backgrounds but are united by a desire to get themselves and their communities involved in the restoration of urban forests and natural areas. Read the Green Kirkland Steward Volunteer description to learn about what we are looking for in potential Stewards.
